Healthcare Providers Out-of-State or Overseas
State Health Plan members have access to BlueCross’ network of participating doctors
and hospitals throughout the United States through the BlueCard® program and around
the world through BlueCross BlueShield Global® Core.
Network providers throughout the United States through the BlueCard® program agree
to accept the Plan’s negotiated rate, or allowed amount, as their total fee. It is
better to stay in network if possible. Using an out-of-network provider means paying
more for your care. Use the links on the SC Public Benefit Authority’s (PEBA) Find Care webpage to find a network provider, pharmacy, dentist or eye doctor near you.
Through BlueCross BlueShield Global Core, your State Health Plan identification card
gives you access to doctors and hospitals in more than 200 countries and territories
worldwide and to a broad range of medical services. The BlueCross BlueShield Global
Core Service Center can help you find providers in the area where you are traveling.
It can also provide other helpful information about health care overseas. Go to BlueCross BlueShield Global Core Global for more information. Be sure to always carry your health plan and prescription drug
identification cards when traveling because you may still use them out of state. If
you are covered by the State Health Plan and need behavioral health care outside South
Carolina, call 800.810.2583.

The 2023-2024 general appropriation bill was passed by the General Assembly. The base
pay for employees in full-time equivalent (FTE) positions earning $50,000 and under
will increase by $2,500 and by 5% for employees earning over $50,000.
Part-time employees who earn an annualized salary of more than $50,000 will receive
a 5% increase. Part-time employees whose annualized salary is less than $50,000 will
receive a prorated amount of the increase. For example, a 0.5 FTE whose salary is
$20,000, annualized as $40,000, will receive a $1,250 base salary increase resulting
in a new salary of $21,250.
