Medical, Dental & Vision

We know the convenience, safety, availability and affordability of virtual health care is important to you and your family. That’s why we are making new telemedicine vendors available (like Teladoc) through our medical plan administrators' partner(s). You will have access to more telemedicine providers at the network discounted rate per visit, subject to annual deductibles and coinsurance (for 2022, the average cost per visit is $49). Given this new expanded offering, Cleveland Clinic Express Care Online will no longer be offered after December 31, 2021.
New Voluntary Benefits
We are expanding our voluntary benefits lineup to include MetLife Pet Insurance* to help with the health and wellness costs associated with your furry family members, and LifeBalance, a customized discount platform designed to help you and your family save money.

A Note on Administrator Changes
Some GE employees will have a new claims administrator for their GE medical option in 2022. When deciding to change claims administrators, we consider many factors, including how such a change will impact our employees and their families. Most of the people affected by this change will continue to be able to utilize the same doctors and hospitals. In some cases, you may see more provider choices and lower costs when you seek medical care. In addition, you may see new resources and tools available to help you seek network providers, manage conditions, or assist with other needs that you may have.
If your current claims administrator is changing in 2022, you will receive a separate communication that provides important resources about this change, including the ability to confirm the network status of your current providers. Health Coach is available at 1-866-272-6007 if you have additional questions. More information can be found here.
