Summer Travel Medical Insurance – Know Your Coverage and Options

Wherever your summer travels take you, take a minute before you leave to review your travel medical insurance coverage through your Blue KC plan and supplemental options available.

Traveling domestically

Emergency and urgent care

For emergency and urgent care needs while traveling, your Blue KC plan has you covered. Log onto your member portal at and select Find Care. From there go to Find Doctors, Specialists & Hospitals and that will route you to Blue KC’s partner, Sapphire Digital’s search page where you can find an urgent care or hospital in the area that you are traveling to. 

Non-emergency care

For non-emergency care and some prescriptions while away from home, you can have a virtual care appointment 24/7 at Blue KC Virtual Care and on the MyBlueKC mobile app.  

Traveling Internationally


Your Blue KC health plan provides certain coverage while traveling in the U.S., but most of those benefits do not extend overseas. GeoBlue is comprehensive, international, trip-by-trip health insurance you can purchase separately from your Blue KC policy. It covers doctor visits, labs, prescriptions, hospitalization in 180 countries, and more. GeoBlue covers the care you need when traveling abroad and is more affordable than you may think.

GeoBlue members enjoy:

  • 24/7 phone, web, mobile, and telemedicine support
  • Easy-to-use mobile app
  • Prompt and convenient access to trusted doctors and hospitals
  • Appointment scheduling support
  • Paperless claims resolution
  • Destination health intelligence

Prepare ahead for your travels and have peace of mind so you can make the best of your long-deserved vacation.
