What should I do if I get seriously ill while traveling?
If you become seriously ill while traveling, the embassy or consulate can help you find medical care. For a complete list of embassies and consulates, see the U.S. Department of State web site. This site also lists local doctors and medical clinics. If you do get sick with a fever or any flu-like illness while traveling, seek medical attention immediately.
Emergency medical care is covered under your Kaiser Health plan. (Learn more about what is considered an emergency condition.)
If you are treated at or admitted to a hospital outside the United States, you or a family member should call Kaiser Permanente as soon as possible. Call 1-800-225-8883 (the telephone number on your ID card) from inside the United States. You may need to use an international operator to reach this number from outside the U.S.
You will probably need to pay for your care at the time you receive it. Save your receipts and get a letter from the doctor describing your illness and treatment; you can submit these to the Health Plan after your return home along with a claim form requesting reimbursement.
