Section 4. Your Costs for Covered Services

Your costs for other care
Your costs for other care

Overseas care: Services provided outside the United States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands are considered overseas care. We pay overseas claims at Preferred benefit levels, so the requirement to use Preferred providers in order to receive benefits does not apply. See Section 5(i) for specific information about our overseas benefits.

Inpatient facility care: You must use Preferred facilities in order to receive benefits. See page 18 for the exceptions to this requirement.
