Geisinger Medicare Plans
Geisinger was founded in 1915 by Abigail A. Geisinger. At age 85 she built a hospital that ultimately became the Geisinger Health System. She insisted, "Make my hospital right; make it the best." Headquartered in Danville, Pennsylvania, Geisinger is a physician-led healthcare system, spanning 43 counties of 20,000 square miles in central and northeast and serving 2.6 million people.
Geisinger is available in Pennsylvania in several regions. Geisinger's Central Region includes the greater Danville, PA area, where the main campus building is located. In the Northeast, there are two conveniently located campuses offering full-service care for residents in northeast Pennsylvania. In the rapidly changing Western area, which is based around State College, there are nine physicians’ offices that serve more than 100,000 patients. Geisinger has been a meaningful part of these areas for more than 30 years. With all of the changes and growth in the last few years, Geisinger has remained committed to growing and improving too. Geisinger is investing in the area as well as working to expand their specialty services offerings with the addition of the new Geisinger Gray’s Woods site as a clinical center for patients.
Geisinger’s vision is to provide the best care across the organization, providing care when and where it’s needed. They strive to work together with other providers, businesses, and educational institutions as well as striving towards improving rural health. Geisinger is a not-for-profit HMO (health maintenance organization) that has become one of the largest rural HMOs in the country.
Geisinger sells their PPO and high deductible plans through Geisinger Quality Options, Inc. While Geisinger Indemnity Insurance Inc sells self-funded plans.
