Find Providers Outside of U.S.

Find providers outside the U.S. with Global® Core

Important Information

You are about to access Global Core on the Blue Cross and Blue Shield (BCBS) Association website. Global Core helps Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma (BCBSOK) members find doctors, hospitals, and health services in more than 200 countries around the world.* The Global Core Find a Provider can help members find contracted providers in countries outside the U.S.


Medicaid members do not have Global Core benefits. Medicaid coverage only applies within the U.S. Medicaid members are covered only within their service area. This service area includes Oklahoma and surrounding state counties that are contracted with BCBSOK. 

HMO members and Medicare Supplement Plan F members can use the Global Core program only for emergency care. If HMO or Medicare Supplement Plan F members get care from doctors or hospitals not contracted with BCBS Plans, they will pay the provider up-front. Members will have to pay the usual out-of-pocket expenses such as deductible, copayment, coinsurance, or non-covered services. Later, they will complete an international claim form and send it to the BCBS Global Core Service Center.

For more information, members can call the customer service number listed on their BCBSOK member ID card. They can also check their benefit materials (member handbook, benefit booklet, or Explanation of Coverage).

*Coverage may vary for each BCBS Plan, so members need to check with their Plan before traveling. Does not apply to Medicaid, Medicare Supplement Plans A and B, or Medicare Carveout members.
