    Good unless you get sick., August, 2016

    Missed chemo treatments due to insurace company not approving treatments on time. Called campany and they said they outsource to a different company for chemo treatment approvals. Called that company and they acted like they had no idea who i was or what was going on. Really didnt seem to care that its life or death.

    Great till you actually need it!, March, 2017

    Stay away from this insurance unless you are healthy. Insurance is managed by Evicore and they basically decide what tests and treatment that you need regardless of what your doctor requests (not that they actually treat you or see you). They "know" better and deny most treatments.

    Avoid - move to Blue Cross, January, 2016

    They ignore evidence provided.

    Harass the patient and Doctor's office with repetitive letters stating the same matter.

    As a result the Doctor office have enough of dealing with GEHA and the patient is forced to do so.

    Do not get trap by their premium cost - this is only a part of the process.

    RUN!, March, 2017

    I got this policy during open season because of cost and my coworkers recommendations. This is the worse company ever I will pay the high premium with Blue Cross before I shell out any more money. Then they have this lab card they don't tell you about so labcorp ends up ripping you a new one instead of informing or even sending you the lab card with your package. November can't come soon enough I'm over GEHA

    Horrible Health Insurance , December, 2016

    I changed from BC Federal to GEHA. This is the worst insurance I have ever had-no exaggeration. They lure you with low premiums, but they don't cover anything. I am healthy and my out of pocket costs with this insurance exceed $3500 this year( I had an injury). If you are a Federal employee, it is open season now and I suggest you GET OUT NOW!! unless you have money to waste and enjoy being aggravated

    GEHA doesn’t work , June, 2018

    I have spent 9 months trying to get an ER visit to process. GEHA hands your claim to United Health Care (UHC). UHC is a black box that you can’t talk to. UHC has no customer service. You can’t talk to UHC by phone, email or mail correspondence. GEHA customer service is useless. They provide you with their best guess as to why UHC won’t process your claim. This requires many hours of your time on the phone. It’s like having a second job.

    An even worse problem is that they may not cover dureable medical equipment, even if your doctor says it is a medical necessity. If GEHA can find a way to deny coverage to save them a buck, they will. They actually required me to provide research in addition to my doctors letter of medical necessity, research that isn’t available. This is dirty.

    Proper Claim Submission is Important, February, 2016

    My claim problems were due to improper coding, missing supporting documentation, and the failure of the medical staff to get proper preauthorization for a procedure--even though I made six phone calls to the doctor's office to ensure this was done. Dealing with the medical group was much more frustrating than with GEHA. Their agents were always helpful in telling me what was missing and how to secure what was needed to complete my claims for my surgical procedure. Their website is quite good to track progress on claims and is very user friendly.

    Beware of what it ACTUALLY covers., May, 2017

    I choose the GEHA high plan through Benefeds because it covered the highest percentage of services. I just got out of the military and didn't know that you need to the 48 page brochure to see what they really cover. I assumed that the percentgaes where what was covered.

    I went to the dentist and recieved a bill for $1479. That was after the $664 I had already paid. They were only paying under 25% of the services.

    They extremely rude customer service reps basically told me too bad, it's my problem. They same with Benefeds, the company that we had to choose the insurances from. Neither front page said GEHA only pays a percentage of the allowed amount. And once I found that amount halfway, through the 48 pages, I found the allowed amount is so low, no dentist would ever charge that little. They were the most expensive insurance, with the highest monthly price. And I cannot cancel because of some BS open season.

    It makes me want to quit my job and get rehired just so I can cancel the insurance.

    Can't Get Cracked Tooth Fixed, December, 2018

    GEHA was great at first. But now, they don't want to pay. I need a crown; they will only pay for a filling. My dentist has submitted several appeals with no response from GEHA. However, they get paid every two weeks. I have been walking around with a cracked tooth for a year now. It makes no sense. It's open enrollment; I'm switching plans.

    Quality service with value, October, 2018

    In the Texas Panhandle, options for reasonable family healthcare coverage in quality facilities is limited. GEHA takes measures to keep costs low, while not minimizing care and service to its members. My family’s coverage has been with GEHA for over 10 years, and I am sure they will be at the top in future comparisons.

    Moving on as soon as possible, March, 2019

    After 28 years, getting away from this bunch of liars. Strait out of a Grisham novel, The Rainmaker. No obstruction too small to delay or deny a claim. Unreasonable disregard for State of Washington Insurance laws. No interest in my side of the story. My medical friends cringe when I pull out my card. It's very sad, they used to be great. Went downhill when Aetna took them over.

    Horrible. Disputed 75% of claims. , February, 2019

    Horrible. If anything goes wrong and you have to have a procedure or multiple visits you will have to fight tooth and nail for coverage. Even after EOB claims they will cover. A pure nightmare for my son's surgery. Even now , I have to pay 1400 for a biopsy they won't cover. Even after MD's office fixed and changed and resubmitted over 12 times.

    Better value -service than BC/BS, December, 2018

    I'm a very satisfied customer. I switched from BC/BS to GEHA about 10 years ago for self and family because my monthly premiums were substantially lower. The coverage is very similar to BC, and I've found getting information and answers from GEHA is easier. Three years ago, I was diagnosed with heart disease and had to have triple bypass surgery; my hospital bill was $275,000 after the first week! I hit my policy's catastrophic cap on the first day and from that point on 100% of my health care was covered for the rest of that year. GEHA is very solid coverage; use in-network providers.
