Today GEHA (pronounced G. E. H. A.) announced it will extend the previously launched COVID-19 Vaccination Incentive Program for GEHA medical plan members to September 6, 2021.

GEHA members will have the opportunity to utilize the extended incentive program, which provides eligible members a $75 wellness account credit for receiving a full COVID-19 vaccine.

On July 29th, President Biden called on state and local governments to use COVID-19 relief funds to give $100 to residents who get vaccinated and said federal workers will have to show proof of vaccination or face new restrictions in the workplace, including complying with weekly testing. GEHA members have the opportunity to secure both the GEHA incentive and their state and local government’s depending on where they reside.

“GEHA is committed to the health and safety of the U.S. federal workforce in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Extending the Vaccination Incentive Program is paramount to our commitment to our members and their families,” said Interim President and CEO of GEHA Rich Bierman.

“Federal workers are the backbone of our nation's infrastructure, and our vaccination incentive program is designed to support them and their families during this critical time.”

Tens of thousands of members have participated in the Vaccination Incentive Program since launched earlier this month. The goal of the program is to continually encourage eligible members within the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

Program participants can use the Vaccination Incentive Program $75 credit on qualified medical expenses such as office visits, co-pays, prescription drugs, eyeglasses, contacts and X-rays.

Eligible members are able to sign up for GEHA’s COVID-19 Vaccination Incentive Program and submit proof of vaccination. Eligible members are GEHA medical plan members who are 18 years of age and older, enrolled in a GEHA wellness program and have not reached their annual wellness program reward limit*.

When eligible members provide proof of their COVID-19 vaccination, they will receive a $75 credit to their GEHA wellness account. To be eligible to receive the incentive, the first COVID-19 vaccination must occur on or before September 6, 2021. Program participants will then have until Dec. 31, 2021, to show proof of complete vaccination. The program is retroactive to 2020 so all eligible GEHA members who received a COVID-19 vaccine prior to September 6, 2021, may also provide proof of their vaccine status to receive a $75 credit to their GEHA wellness account.

Additional eligibility information, proof of vaccination and program sign up will be available at

*The Vaccine Incentive Program credit will be the lesser of $75 or the amount remaining to meet the eligible member’s annual wellness program reward limit.
