The BlueCard® Program

Traveling across the country or around the world? The BlueCard Program* helps Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Montana (BCBSMT) members:

  • Get needed health care when you travel or live outside your Blue Plan service area
  • Get the same benefits as your BCBSMT plan when you travel or are away from home for an extended amount of time
  • Find a doctor or hospital throughout the United States — More than 90% of all hospitals and doctors in the U.S. contract with Blue Cross and Blue Shield (BCBS)
  • Find a doctor or hospital outside the U.S. in more than 200 countries around the world through BlueCard Worldwide®

BlueCard coverage varies for each BCBS Plan. It depends on if you choose a provider who contracts with BCBS. Be sure to call Customer Service at the number on the back of your member ID card before you travel.

If you are already a BCBSMT member, log in to Blue Access for MembersSM to find more information about BlueCard.

* The BlueCard Program is not available for Medicaid, Medicare Advantage or Medicare Part D plan members.
