Q: What SCAN on the go benefits can I use when I’m away from home?
When you’re out of town, or even across the country, the SCAN benefits you need to stay safe and healthy go with you. The SCAN on the go kit explains how to use these benefits and more when you’re away from home:
- Refill a prescription
- Work out at a SilverSneakers gym
- Get replacement eyeglasses
- Have a Telehealth visit with a doctor
- See a dentist for emergency dental care
- Get urgent care at CVS Minute Clinics, in addition to other urgent care options
All SCAN on the go benefits may not be included in your plan. Check the Evidence of Coverage for your SCAN plan before you leave home to know what’s covered when you’re on the road.
Q: Can I use SCAN on the go benefits even when I’m traveling outside the U.S.?
Most of the benefits listed in the SCAN on the go guide are limited to when you are in the United States. One exception would be SilverSneakers online classes, which you can access anywhere you have internet connection. Otherwise, when out of the country, most SCAN plans include coverage for worldwide urgent and emergency care through SCAN Travel Assurance. If you are planning to travel internationally, call Member Services to verify your coverage and get a SCAN Travel Assurance kit. This travel-ready kit includes helpful tips and information, claim forms and important phone numbers.
