Attention: GEHA insurance is only available to federal employees and retirees.
GEHA health insurance coverage a great option if you're a current or retired federal employee. If you're not, you'll need to consider another health insurance company.
GEHA provides excellent medical plans for federal employees and retirees. It offers three plan options that come with great discounts and perks. GEHA also offers Medicare supplemental insurance. GEHA health insurance plans include medical coverage abroad.
GEHA is a not-for-profit health insurance provider with many years of experience in providing affordable and quality health insurance. It has built a network with millions of in-network provider locations and thousands of hospitals.
GEHA offers three main health insurance plans and Medicare supplement insurance.
Its High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) is combined with a Health Savings Account (HSA) or Health Reimbursement Account (HRA). People who choose this plan option can set aside money to use to pay medical bills and other medical services approved by the IRS.

GEHA also provides Medigap insurance that helps cover expenses not covered by Original Medicare.
Monthly premium rates for each GEHA health plan are available on its website on each plan's respective page. These rates can be adjusted by location, job-type, and number of people on the plan.
This transparency makes it easy to understand how much you'd be paying for each health plan wherever you live and whether you want an individual or family plan. Make sure the monthly premium fits into your budget because paying premiums consistently is how you keep your plan in force.
Each of GEHA’s health plans come with the following discount opportunities:
With GEHA’s maternity program, expecting mothers can find educational resources about pregnancy and health and receive one of the specified Homelink breast pumps and two supplemental supply kits for free.
GEHA also offers weight loss support through an online Virtual Lifestyle Management (VLM) program. This program was created by medical professionals. Through this program, GEHA members are coached on nutrition and exercise. Only GEHA members with chronic conditions are eligible for participation.
GEHA offers another program Better Choices, Better Health (BCBH) to eligible members that provides support for managing chronic conditions.
Many insurers offer similar programs and benefits with their health plans, so GEHA is competitive for the industry with these perks.
Best Company has not received many GEHA reviews, so conclusions about the customer experience are unavailable. Without more reviews, it's difficult to know what GEHA members like and what they dislike.
GEHA health insurance plans are only available to current and retired federal employees and their spouses and dependents. Other people will need to find another health insurance provider.
