Preparing for Your Trip
If you're far from home, an illness or injury can put you in unknown territory. But with a few minutes of planning before leaving home, you can help protect your health and your wallet.
- Understand your coverage before you leave. Know what you would have to pay out of your own pocket if you need medical care while you are outside the U.S.
- If you're enrolled in a BCBSTX medical plan: call BCBSTX customer service at 1-800-521-2227.
- If you're enrolled in the Kaiser HMO medical plan: Call Kaiser Member Services at 1-800-464-4000.
- Print a copy of the Travel Assistance wallet card and carry it with you when traveling on BMC business.
- Register on the Chubb Travel Services portal at acetravelassistance.net. (Username: email@example.com; Password: acea&h.)

Proof of Coverage above Medical Coverage
