* Primary Plan is a Group Health Benefit Plan, an individual health benefit plan or a governmental health plan designed to be the first payer of claims (such as Medicare) for an Insured Person prior to the responsibility of this Plan. Such plans must have coverage limits in excess of $50,000 per incident or per year to be considered a Primary Plan. PLEASE NOTE: Medicaid and V.A. health plans do not constitute primary health insurance because they are not defined as the first payer of medical claims. The primary plan does not need to be a Blue Cross and/or Blue Shield medical plan in order to be eligible.
At the time of enrollment, GeoBlue has a 6 month enrollment minimum. However, customers are not locked into a 6 month contract. GeoBlue understands that life plans change, therefore we allow our members to cancel any month they choose with no cancellation fees or penalties. All cancellation requests must come from the insured subscriber and be received by GeoBlue in writing via email, fax, or regular mail. GeoBlue does not refund premium for a partial month. Retroactive cancellations are not permitted.

However, GeoBlue will process and pay overseas claims as a primary payor and reserves the right, where applicable, to contact your primary insurance company to coordinate benefits.
Many health insurance policies have limitations on the types of treatment that will be covered while traveling abroad, so if you need to visit a medical facility in another country, or be evacuated to another location that can better treat you, your health insurance may not cover it. Travel insurance can fill that gap—most travel insurance policies have the option of covering illnesses.
