Whether you have health coverage through an employer or an individually purchased plan, you have options for coverage when you’re traveling outside the U.S.
If you have a Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) plan through your job, you may have Blue Cross Blue Shield Global Core. Log in to your Blue Access for MembersSM (BAMSM) account or talk to your benefits administrator to find out if you have Global Core.
Global Core allows you to use your medical coverage outside the U.S. Note that providers outside the U.S. may not be set up to handle copays and deductibles at the time of service. You may have to pay full costs up front and submit a claim when you return to the U.S. Also, your plan may not cover all costs for care you receive outside the U.S., such as medical evacuation.
Whether or not your plan offers Global Core, GeoBlue® travel medical plans may be an option for you. These plans cover illnesses, injuries and medical emergencies abroad for people up to age 95, even if they aren’t a member of a BCBSTX plan.
No matter where you go, be sure to carry your member ID card.

Hi Morris, I was able to locate you in our system and have ordered a new ID card for you. You should receive this in 10 to 14 business days. We do recommend editing or deleting your post to keep your private information safe. ~ Kayla
