Aftermarket windshields are in the system and available through at least one of my suppliers(Pilkington) the part number is DW1875GBY with blue shade with green tint and DW1875GTY green tint. Part number for carlite is DW1875GTYCAR. these are rain sensor windshieds. If Geico won't pay for OEM glass on a brand new car then find a better insurance company. As for Safelite stand over the installer with a magnifying glass. Although they're getting better quality installers, many still take shortcuts. watch and be sure they primer any scratches from cutting out the old glass and adhesives.
