Medica Travel Program Network

If you’re away from home and get sick or hurt, we’ve got you covered! When you travel outside the Medica service area* you can get network coverage by visiting a provider in the Travel Program Network. This nationwide network is one of the largest in the country. If you have children attending college outside the service area, they can use this network, too.

Travel Program providers

How the Travel Program Works

Receiving care from a Travel Network provider is just like getting care within the Medica service area. When you visit a provider, simply show your member ID card. If you have a deductible, copayment or coinsurance, it will apply. Travel Network providers will file claims for you, so you won't have any additional paperwork.

Keep in Mind

  • Emergency care is always covered at your network benefit level.
  • If you travel inside the Medica service area and see a provider outside your plan’s network, your out-of-network benefits will apply.
  • Chiropractic care isn’t included in the Travel Program. If you see a chiropractor outside the Medica service area your out-of-network benefits will apply.
