Geisinger Health Plan: A history of caring
We have deep roots providing care for our community. See how Geisinger Health Plan became a leader in quality health insurance.
We began in 1972 as a rural, prepaid health plan offered as a pilot program to Geisinger Medical Center employees and residents of the five counties surrounding Geisinger Medical Center in Danville.
In 1985, the Health Plan received its Certificate of Authority to operate an HMO under the authority of the Pennsylvania Health Maintenance Act of 1973.
Keeping healthcare affordable
We offered a significant premium advantage during the 80s and 90s, when healthcare costs began to escalate. Membership grew rapidly. In 1990, we reached 100,000 members.
The popularity of managed care grew steadily. Today, we provide a variety of coverage options to fit the needs of our members.
Geisinger Health Plan has received national recognition for our innovation, and for uniquely and effectively managing medical costs and improving outcomes.
