Group Health
 

Group Health Classic/Value

These plans require you to seek services by a Group Health provider.  If you happen to go to a non-Group Health provider, you will not receive coverage.

You must verify your provider contracts with Group Health to receive maximum coverage.  This is important, as you could be responsible for costs if you receive care from a provider who is not in the Group Health network.

For additional information, or to find a provider, contact Group Health at (888) 901-4636 or visit https://www1.ghc.org/html/public/employer/pebb.
