BlueCard® Program

The BlueCard program links participating health care providers and the independent Blue Cross and Blue Shield Plans across the country and around the world through a single electronic network.

BlueCard enables our members to obtain health care services while traveling or living in another Blue Cross and/or Blue Shield Plan’s service area.
