How your benefits work overseas
For information about overseas benefits and your claims, call us toll-free at +1-888-999-9862 using the appropriate country code.
Inpatient hospital care
Standard Option benefits are paid at the Preferred level. You are responsible for a $250 admission copayment. Precertification is not required for hospital admission outside the U.S.
Basic Option benefits are paid at the Preferred level. You are responsible for a $150 per day copayment up to $750, per admission. Precertification is not required for a hospital admission outside the U.S.
Outpatient hospital care
Standard Option benefits are paid at the Preferred level. After your calendar year deductible is met, you pay only the 15% coinsurance amount for outpatient hospital or facility care.
Basic Option benefits are paid at the Preferred level, so you pay the $75 copayment for outpatient hospital or facility care.
Standard Option and Basic Option benefits for care provided by a physician or other covered professional provider outside the U.S. are paid at the Preferred level using a either a customary percentage of the billed charge or a provider-negotiated discount as our Plan Allowance.
Drugs and medications that require prescriptions overseas may differ from those that require a prescription in the U.S. Drugs purchased outside the U.S. must be an equivalent product to drugs that by Federal law of the U.S. require a prescription to purchase, or there must be clinical evidence that prescribing the drug is consistent with the standards of medical practice in that country.
If you purchase a prescription drug at a local pharmacy outside the United States, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands, you will have to pay for the medication and then file a claim to us for reimbursement. Payment will be based on the Preferred level benefit.
Under Standard Option, you can also order prescription drugs through the Mail Service Prescription Drug Program. Your address must have a U.S. ZIP code and the prescribing physician must be licensed in the U.S. The Mail Service Prescription Drug Program is not available under Basic Option.
Important Information for FEP Standard Option members in Germany
Effective December 4, 2012, Caremark will no longer be able to accept orders through their Mail Order or Specialty pharmacy for members with APO and FPO shipping addresses, due to changes in German law. Standard Option members will need to obtain their prescriptions at a local German pharmacy and submit the claim for reimbursement. Standard Option members will be charged the lesser of their Mail Order or Retail cost share or, for Specialty drugs, the lesser of their Specialty or Retail cost share when submitting paper claims for covered drugs obtained at a local retail pharmacy in Germany on or after December 4, 2012. Claims should be submitted by fax at 001-480-614-7674 or through the website at fepblue.org/myblue for reimbursement.
Members residing in Germany with DPO military addresses may continue to receive delivery of Mail Order and Specialty medications through CVS Caremark.
