October 08, 2019

HERSHEY, Pa. — Geisinger Health Plan (GHP) announced Oct. 8 that Penn State Health has joined its provider network.

The new agreement, which went into effect Sept. 18, makes Penn State Health an in-network, preferred provider for GHP members. Penn State Health joins a provider network of more than 29,000 primary care specialty physicians, 120 hospitals and 132 urgent and convenient care locations.

“As Pennsylvanians review their 2020 healthcare coverage options, it’s important they know what healthcare providers are in their health plan’s network,” said Steve Youso, GHP president and CEO. “We know our members want a choice when it comes to their healthcare and Penn State Health provides a full range of quality care options across central Pennsylvania.”

GHP has about 550,000 members in Pennsylvania and coverage available for businesses of all sizes, individuals and families, Medicare beneficiaries, Children’s Health Insurance Program and Medical Assistance recipients.

“For many years, Penn State Health St. Joseph patients in the Berks County region and Geisinger employees and their dependents with Geisinger Health Plan coverage have been able to access our health care services,” said Steve Massini, Penn State Health CEO. “This new agreement builds on that foundation and lets us ensure that same access to all Penn State Health facilities and providers across our network for each Geisinger Health Plan member.”
