Go Confidently With BCBSND

If you live in North Dakota, you likely already value your access to care. With BCBSND, 99.6 percent of doctors and 99 percent of hospitals are in network.

But did you know our BCBS membership gives you access to care across the U.S.? That’s good news for members who live out of state or are traveling.

You get the same rates and network access local BCBS companies negotiate for their members. More than 85 percent of providers across the U.S. work with a BCBS plan.

Whether you are traveling or live out of state, follow these tips for coverage:

  • Always carry your current member ID card.
  • Call the number on the back of your card for prior authorization, if necessary.
  • Use the National Doctor and Hospital Finder or call 1-800-810-BLUE (2583).

Traveling abroad
You also have access to doctors and hospitals abroad through the BCBS Global Core program.

Tips for international travel:

  • Always carry your current member ID card.
  • Contact us before you go for coverage information.
  • For immediate help, call 1-800-810-BLUE (2583) day or night. A coordinator will work with a medical professional to arrange for care.

In an emergency, always go to the nearest hospital.

Wishing you safe and happy travels!
