As a member of the Canadian Association of Blue Cross Plans, we have enhanced our travel insurance portfolio by partnering with CanAssistance to offer the BlueCard program exclusively to Blue Cross policyholders.
The program gives travelers insured through Blue Cross access to the Blue Cross Blue Shield health care providers network, the largest network of its kind in the United States (95% of physicians and 96% of hospitals), with no upfront costs and easier, faster claims processing. In other words, Blue Cross-insured Canadians who become ill or get injured while travelling in the United States are “treated like a local.”
The program links participating health care providers through a single electronic network for claim processing and reimbursement. During a visit to a health care provider, the insured traveler benefits from a fast and efficient 100% digital experience with no out-of-pocket medical costs.*
Coverage spans the entire United States (including Hawaii, Puerto Rico and Alaska), where a Blue Cross plan insures 100 million or 1 in 3 Americans.
The U.S. is the number one destination of Canadian travellers based on CanAssistance data, with Florida being the most preferred state to visit.
*The insured traveller must contact CanAssistance before any medical consultation to benefit from this service.
