Peace of Mind Packs Easily

Whether you’re heading off to Italy or Morocco or China, the fun of travel is seeing unfamiliar places and having new, exciting experiences. But one thing you don’t want to be unpredictable is your healthcare.

That’s why it’s a good idea to consider international travel health insurance, which provides 24/7 global medical assistance for chronic conditions, routine health and wellness, urgent and emergency care (including emergency evacuations), and more.

This type of insurance provides peace of mind when you’re:

  • Taking a trip.
    Going for a week or several months? You’ll enjoy yourself more, knowing your medical needs are covered. This is especially important if you have existing health problems.
  • Studying abroad.
    If you or your child is going to be in a foreign country for education, you’ll want to be covered for any expected and unexpected medical care.
  • Living abroad.
    Whether you are a U.S. citizen living in a foreign country or a foreign national living in the United States, it’s simple to access the care you need.

Not all international travel health insurance plans are created equal. BCBSRI has teamed up with GeoBlueSM* to offer high-quality plans because it offers important features such as:

  • Access to an elite network of English-speaking doctors and facilities across the globe
  • The ability to make appointments right from your mobile device
  • Cashless appointments, as network doctors and hospitals bill GeoBlue directly

My son was sick over 7,000 miles away

When the reality hit me that my son was sick in a foreign country over 7,000 miles away in the Philippines, I felt helpless. But the GeoBlue staff was so caring and helpful. They were able to tell me how close the best source of care was from his location (only eight miles!) and explained about the high standards of care all their facilities have agreed to provide. And the fact that my son could use the mobile tools to secure care and arrange for direct payment provided even more assurance that he would be supported by a completely competent and forward-thinking company!
