Emergency Care

Who is this for?

box-icon-HMO

If you're a Blue Care Network (HMO) plan member, this information will help you know how to get emergency care while you're traveling.

As a Blue Care Network (HMO) plan member, you're always covered for emergency care – in the United States or another country.

  • In the U.S., go to the nearest hospital emergency room or call 911. Notify your primary care physician within 24 hours of your emergency treatment so he or she can coordinate your follow-up care.
  • Outside of the U.S., go to the nearest hospital emergency room. You may be asked to pay at the time you receive care. We will reimburse you if the situation meets our criteria for emergency care. 

To be reimbursed, use our Member Reimbursement form.
