LVHN Facilities at Hazleton Now Accept Geisinger Gold

Lehigh Valley Hospital (LVH)–Hazleton has entered into a multi-year agreement with Geisinger Health Plan (GHP) that will make it easier for members of Geisinger Gold Medicare Advantage insurance plans to get the care they need at any of Lehigh Valley Health Network’s (LVHN) locations in and around Hazleton. Through this contract, LVH–Hazleton becomes an in-network provider with Geisinger Gold, which will provide better costs and easier access for Medicare customers.

Geisinger Gold members now are able to access inpatient and outpatient services at LVH–Hazleton, the Health & Wellness Center at Hazleton, the Health Center at Mountain Top, ExpressCARE and at other LVH–Hazleton outpatient sites. Geisinger Gold is also accepted at all Lehigh Valley Physician Group (LVPG)–Hazleton offices through the northeast region.

“Lehigh Valley Hospital–Hazleton is happy to expand on our relationship with Geisinger Health Plan and offer its Geisinger Gold members access to health care in the Greater Hazleton area that puts patients and families first," says John Fletcher, LVHN Senior Vice President and President of LVH–Hazleton.

In addition to Geisinger Gold, LVH–Hazleton is an in-network provider for GHP Family, a medical assistance plan. LVH–Hazleton does not accept Geisinger‘s commercial HMO/PPO plans or the GHP Kids children's health insurance plan at this time.

Geisinger Gold Medicare Advantage plans are offered by Geisinger Health Plan/Geisinger Indemnity Insurance Company, health plans with a Medicare contract. Continued enrollment in Geisinger Gold depends on annual contract renewal. The provider network may change at any time.
