*Because GeoBlue short-term plans provide coverage outside of the U.S. only, they do not include an immunization/vaccination benefit. Based on the country where the vaccination is administered, the government may or may not fund the cost.

Telemedicine services are provided by Teladoc Health, directly to members. GeoBlue assumes no liability and accepts no responsibility for information provided by Teladoc Health and the performance of the services by Teladoc Health.
