Geisinger: Change in Mental Health and Substance Abuse Providers

Effective July 1, 2016, Geisinger Health Plan (GHP) is making some changes to their network of mental health and substance abuse providers.  GHP has selected Magellan Healthcare to provide mental health and substance abuse services as covered by the group plan.
