Full in-network access to UPMC doctors and hospitals.

Understanding In-Network Access to UPMC

UPMC is committed to ensuring our patients and the communities we serve have the information they need to make informed decisions about their health care. UPMC provides most Highmark members with full, in-network access to UPMC hospitals, doctors, and services and accepts most major insurers, including Aetna, Cigna, Highmark, United Healthcare, and UPMC Health Plan.

We look forward to continuing our commitment to serving the health care needs of the communities we serve in western Pennsylvania and beyond.

Which Highmark members have full, in-network access to UPMC? 

Highmark members with broad-network commercial or Medicare Advantage plans (which is the majority of Highmark members) have full, in-network access to UPMC hospitals, doctors, and services. Highmark members with narrow-network plans have some limited in-network access to UPMC. If you have additional questions, we encourage you to review your plan carefully with Highmark.

If my Highmark plan provides full, in-network access to UPMC, will I pay higher out-of-pocket costs for UPMC doctors and hospitals?

No. Highmark members pay no more out-of-pocket to go to UPMC providers than to Allegheny Health Network providers.

How do I make an appointment if I have a Highmark product? 

Call us at 1-800-533-8762, and our schedulers will work with you to make appointments at your convenience. Our team is happy to help you schedule whether you have a Highmark product with full, in-network access to UPMC or a narrow-network product that may require seeing UPMC providers on an out-of-network basis.

What if I have insurance through Aetna, Cigna, United Healthcare, or UPMC Health Plan?

UPMC accepts most major insurers for all services, including Aetna, Cigna, United Healthcare, and UPMC Health Plan.
