GeoBlue Provides New Coverage Option for International Employees, Travelers
BlueCrossBlueShield of Arizona has launched GeoBlue, providing health plans and services for employees of U.S. based international businesses. Overseas employees take on critical assignments and represent a significant investment by their organizations. GeoBlue helps those international performers be successful.
GeoBlue adds a level of international coverage and offers certain benefits such as medical evacuation that aren’t necessarily included among the international benefits of domestic insurance plans. Other benefits offered include an extensive network of more than 6,500 vetted, contracted, English-speaking, doctors and 1,100 contracted hospitals in 190 countries. Members have access to concierge-level service and convenient online and mobile self-service tools.
GeoBlue’s self-service tools help members to research providers, access news and information on health, as well as a database to translate medical terms and find country-specific prescription and over-the-counter names/preparations for more than 400 medications.
Plans include the following features for BCBSAZ’s group clients and their employees:
- Processing of covered provider bills and member claims in local currencies.
- Cashless access to inpatient and outpatient care
- Customer experience supported by innovative technology
- An experienced GeoBlue global health coordinator will schedule doctor appointments, and arrange for any necessary follow up treatment
