Concerns around the COVID-19 pandemic can exacerbate stress, anxiety and depression — we’re here to help.
Updated June 30, 2020
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, many of us are facing drastic changes to our normal routines.
With many businesses ordered to temporarily shut down, people practicing social distancing and isolating at home and an overwhelming amount of news coverage, the COVID-19 pandemic has understandably triggered a lot of fear and concern among our communities.
Due to these unprecedented and uncertain times, many people may experience mental health issues like anxiety, stress and depression. And those who already experience these issues may have a heightened experience.
If you’re struggling right now, we’re here for you.
Mental health and telepsychiatry services for GHP members
Geisinger Health Plan (GHP) is committed to providing access to mental health services for our members, even in times when social distancing makes a face-to-face visit to a doctor difficult.
That’s why we’re here to connect you with mental health services in your community, including doctors and healthcare providers now offering telepsychiatry appointments, which are visits held over the phone or through video chat, like FaceTime.
Through July 31, all GHP members can use the Teladoc telehealth services without any cost sharing.
How to get started
This service is available now, and year-round, to most GHP members. Just call 1-888-839-7972 (or find the number on the back of your insurance card) to get started.
Our team is standing by Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to help.
