How To Determine Geisinger Health Plan Benefits For Substance Abuse Treatment

When you decide that it’s time to learn more about mental health or substance use disorder treatment, it can be tough to know where to start.

  • calling the phone number on your health insurance card
  • reaching out to a representative of your health insurance plan directly
  • reading your policy online to learn more about your coverage
  • calling a treatment center directly to learn whether they accept your health insurance

Where Are Geisinger Health Plans Available?

Geisinger Health Plan is available to residents of Pennsylvania, including residents of Scranton and Wilkes-Barre. 

Types Of Geisinger Health Plans

Geisinger offers several levels of care to Pennsylvania residents and their family members, including HMO, POS, and PPO plans. 

Geisinger also offers specialized plans for Pennsylvania residents 65 and older (Geisinger Gold) and a state-supported health insurance program for children who do not have health insurance (CHIP). 

Geisinger Health Plan options for adults under the age of 65 include: 


A Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) plan allows you to work with a primary care physician who manages most aspects of your health and wellness. This plan is typically lower-cost than other plans. 


With a Point of Service (POS) plan, you’ll choose a primary care physician to manage your care, but you can see other providers in or out of the Geisinger network. 


A Preferred Provider Option (PPO) allows you to receive healthcare without a primary care physician, and you can select providers inside or outside of the Geisinger network.
