For Students/Members

What is Direct Pay?

Direct Pay is a service that issues a Guarantee of Payment (GOP) from GeoBlue to participating providers outside the U.S to cover medical treatment. In many countries providers require this at the time of the visit. If this guarantee is not arranged prior to the visit, the physician may require payment up front from you.

Request Direct Pay at least 48 hours prior to your appointment to avoid paying out-of-pocket for medical care and submitting claims.
