In-network access for those outside the regions.

If you're a Highmark or other Blue Cross Blue Shield member living outside the 5-county Pittsburgh region and 5-county Erie region, you will continue to have in-network access to the UPMC doctors and hospitals located outside of those regions.

However, if you need specialized care and have to travel to a UPMC doctor or facility in the Pittsburgh or Erie regions, your care may be considered out-of-network.

Don't be left out for any reason. Make sure you have affordable access to all UPMC doctors, hospitals, and health care professionals by considering your many insurance options and to choose an in-network health plan.

Aetna, Cigna, UPMC Health Plan, Coventry Health America, United Healthcare, among others.
