GEHA works with Medicare A & B

Combine Medicare coverage and GEHA coverage for even better protection.

With GEHA’s High Option or Standard Option combined with Medicare A & B, a sudden hospital stay, a prolonged illness or a major surgical procedure won’t overwhelm your budget.

Highlights when you combine GEHA's High Option or Standard Option with Medicare A & B:

  • $600 Medicare Part B premium reimbursement: New in 2020 for the High Option only, this reimbursement will help with your Medicare Part B premium payments. Learn how this program works.
  • Waived deductibles, copays and coinsurance: GEHA waives deductibles, copays and coinsurance whether your provider is in- or out-of-network.
  • No cost to you: For covered inpatient and outpatient hospital services, surgeries and office visits, your cost is nothing.
  • Care wherever you are: If you need medical care while you’re outside the United States, copays and deductibles are still waived.
  • Comprehensive prescription coverage: GEHA’s High and Standard Option plans include quality prescription coverage. High Option members have reduced copays for covered prescriptions.
  • Added coverage: GEHA members also get vision coverage and $2,500 toward hearing aids (every three years).

When you have GEHA and Medicare, most of your claims can be filed electronically by GEHA Express. For information on electronic claims filing, call GEHA Express at 800.282.4342.
