GETTING STARTED

Five things you should know about using your benefits.

Are you new to GSC? If so, then this is the page for you. Here are the five things you need to know to make the most of your benefits plan.

GSC ID Card
🎫 Your ticket to great benefits! 

1. One number is all you need

  • GSC doesn’t use policy numbers. All you need is the number on the front of your ID card ending in -00.
  • Dependents are listed on the back of your card, each with a unique ending (-01, -02, etc.).
  • If you spot an error on your card, contact your plan administrator right away.

2. Sign up for Online Services

No seriously. Online Services makes your life way easier. Submit claims, check coverage, set up direct deposit, and more! You’ll wonder what you ever did without it.
