The GeoBlue Health Plan is a Blue Cross Blue Shield plan for faculty and staff and their dependents who live and work overseas.
What you should know:
- You do not need to designate a Primary Care Provider, and referrals are not required to see a specialist.
- There are no copayments for office visits outside the U.S; however, there is a copayment of $25 for office visits in the U.S.
- You have access to the Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO network in the U.S. If you see a provider outside the network, you will be responsible for a deductible of $250/member, $500/family, and coinsurance of 20%.
- You will receive one ID card for medical services and prescriptions.
- You will receive the most cost-effective level of benefits (known as in-network benefits) in the U.S. if you choose services at a Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO provider. The GeoBlue Plan also provides an out-of-network benefit for members who choose to receive care outside the PPO network in the U.S.
