If you are a member of Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield and are traveling out
of state, Arkansas Blue Cross is considered your "home" Plan. When you are traveling
in another state, the Blue Cross Plan in the other state is your "host" Plan.
Arkansas, as your home Plan, always will be responsible for the "member relationship."
The host Plan manages the "provider relationship."
If you are traveling out of state and need medical care, call 1-800-810-BLUE (2583)
to find the name of the nearest participating hospital. If it is an emergency, go
directly to the nearest hospital’s emergency room.
When you travel out-of-state, you can take advantage of the provider relationships
in other states because you are a Blue Plan member. By using BlueCard®
participating providers, you will reduce your out-of-pocket expenses and will not
be "balance billed" by participating providers for covered services.
