You are about to access Global® Core on the Blue Cross and Blue Shield (BCBS) Association website. Global Core helps Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Montana members find doctors, hospitals, and health services in more than 200 countries around the world.* The Global Core Find a Provider tool can help you find contracted providers in countries outside the U.S.
Medicaid members do not have Global Core benefits. Medicaid coverage only applies within the U.S. Medicaid members are covered only within their service area. This service area includes Montana and surrounding state counties that are contracted with BCBSMT.
HMO members and Medicare Supplement Plan F members can use the Global Core 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 BCBS Global Core Service Center.
For more information, call the Customer Service number listed on your BCBSMT member ID card. You can also check your benefit materials (member handbook, benefit booklet, or Explanation of Coverage).
*Coverage may vary for each BCBS Plan, so check your plan benefits before traveling. Does not apply to Medicaid, Medicare Supplement Plans A and B, or Medicare Carveout members.
