GHP Family/Medicaid FAQs

What is the cost for GHP Family?

If you are eligible for Medical Assistance in Pennsylvania, there is no monthly premium for your GHP Family coverage. Many services are available at no cost or require only a small copay. The GHP Family Member Handbook gives you details on costs and coverage.
How do I enroll in GHP Family?

If you’d like to enroll in GHP Family, first you need to apply for Medical Assistance. Then, if you’re eligible for Medical Assistance, you can choose GHP Family to provide your healthcare coverage if you live in Pennsylvania.

How do I enroll a new family member?

How to add a baby: 

  • If you have a baby while you’re a GHP Family member, your baby will be covered by GHP Family from the day they come into the world. Call 855-227-1302 as soon as possible after the big event so we can help you choose a primary care provider (PCP) for your new baby. Then you’ll receive a GHP Family member ID card for your baby. You’ll also need to contact your PA county assistance office to be sure your baby is enrolled in Medical Assistance.

How to add other family or household members:

  • Anytime someone other than a newborn joins your family or household, you need to contact your county assistance office to find out if that person is eligible for Medical Assistance. If they are eligible, your county assistance office caseworker will help them enroll in Medical Assistance. Then your new family member can enroll in GHP Family online by visiting the PA Enrollment Services website, or by calling 800-440-3989.
