Geisinger Gold annual wellness gift card frequently asked questions:
If you’re a Geisinger Gold member with a Jan. 1, 2023, effective date, you should have received your member ID card. Next, we encourage you to schedule and complete an annual wellness visit — you’ll receive a $40 gift card. Questions? Find answers below.
Do I need to activate the ID card to get the gift card?
You don’t need to activate your ID card to begin using your benefits. To receive the gift card, you need to schedule and complete your annual wellness visit. Once you’ve done both these things, we’ll send you a $40 gift card.
How do I schedule my wellness visit, and whom should I see?
You’ll see your primary care provider (PCP). Just contact them to make an appointment. They’ll let us know when your visit is completed.
What if I had my annual wellness visit already? Do I still receive a gift card?
Annual Medicare wellness visits are a yearly benefit, and you’re eligible for one per benefit year. You’ll receive your gift card once you complete your 2023 visit.

Does GHP cover flu shots and vaccinations?
*Many of these preventive services are covered with no member cost sharing when obtained from a participating/preferred doctor, unless otherwise noted.
If your doctor provides medical services during your preventive care visit that are not included in the preventive care list, these items will be considered under your standard medical plan coverage. This means you may be responsible for cost sharing.
See your plan materials for specific details about your plan coverage.
What copayments am I responsible for?
