:: Provider Finder ® ::
Find Providers Outside of U.S.

Important Information

You are about to access BlueCard WorldWide® on the Blue Cross and Blue Shield (BCBS) Association Web site. BlueCard WorldWide helps Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois members find doctors, hospitals, and health services in more than 200 countries around the world.* The BlueCard WorldWide World Access® Find a Provider can help members find contracted providers in countries outside the U.S.

Please Note:

Medicaid members (BlueSalud and BlueSCI) do not have BlueCard Worldwide benefits. Medicaid coverage only applies within the U.S. Medicaid members are covered only within their service area. This service area includes Illinois and surrounding state counties that are contracted with BCBSIL.

HMO members and Medicare Supplement Plan F members can use the BlueCard WorldWide program only for emergency care. If HMO or Medicare Supplement Plan F members get care from doctors or hospitals not contracted with BCBS Plans, they will pay the provider up-front. Members will have to pay the usual out-of-pocket expenses such as deductible, copayment, coinsurance, or non-covered services. Later, they will complete an international claim form and send it to the BlueCard Worldwide Service Center.

For more information, members can call the Customer Service number on their ID card. They can also check their benefit materials (Member Handbook, Benefit Booklet, or Explanation of Coverage).

*Coverage may vary for each BCBS Plan, so members need to check with their Plan before traveling. Does not apply to Medicaid BlueSalud, Medicaid BlueSCI, Medicare Supplement Plans A and B, or Medicare Carveout members.
