Q: Where can I find an explanation of maternity benefits?
A: Your GEHA plan brochure is your best source of information. Generally speaking, if you use in-network providers and have a pregnancy without complications, you will be covered at 100%. There may be circumstances in which this does not apply. Please call GEHA Customer Care at 800.821.6136 for clarification if needed.
Q: What about lab work?
A: GEHA recommends that you always use the Lab Card program offered by Quest Diagnostics. Click Lab Card for more information or call GEHA Customer Care at 800.821.6136 with any questions.
Q: How much time do I have to add my baby to my GEHA policy?
A: You have up to 60 days to add your baby to your plan. You should contact our Enrollment Department at 800.821.6136 for details.
Q: Is my baby covered under my maternity benefits while he/she is in the hospital?
A: The baby will be covered for normal nursery charges only. If your baby requires special or non-routine care, he/she will be considered under the general medical benefits as a separate person on your policy. This includes circumcision. Please see your GEHA plan brochure if you need clarification.
