Q:

We’re planning a vacation. Does my health plan offer coverage outside of South Carolina?



A:

All of PEBA Insurance Benefits’ health plans offer limited coverage outside of South Carolina and the United States. State Health Plan and BlueChoice HealthPlan HMO subscribers have access to doctors and hospitals throughout the United States and around the world through the BlueCard Program and Blue Cross and Blue Shield provider networks. BlueChoice members have BlueCard coverage for urgent and emergency care only. Before your trip, read the BlueCard section in the Insurance Benefits Guide to find out what insurance information you’ll need on your trip and what services will be covered. Please note that BlueCard Worldwide is not available to Medicare Supplemental Plan subscribers.
