From the CEO
Have you been putting off health screenings and tests (physical exams, including women’s gynecological exam, routine cancer screenings, and blood cholesterol tests), child and adult immunizations, follow up specialists appointments, and inquiring about the Foreign Service Benefit Plan’s (FSBP) Wellness Programs (healthy pregnancy, diabetes education, and disease management)? Caring for you and your family’s health doesn’t have to be daunting.
AFSPA and the FSBP are dedicated to making you and your family’s health a priority. With over 975,000 providers at over 371,000 locations domestically, we can assist you with locating an Aetna Choice POS II (Open Access) provider. You can search and locate a domestic provider here. For international care, we have direct billing arrangements with over 150 facilities worldwide where no money is required up front for services. Most of our direct billing facilities have arrangements for inpatient hospitalization only; however, many arrangements include complete maternity care, routine annual physical exams, all covered outpatient services, and/or accidental injury. You can search and locate a direct billing facility here.
If you have specific questions about caring for your health, please log into the Member Portal to send us a secure message. Having trouble logging into the Member Portal?
