When you travel more than 100 miles from home for less than 90 days***, you have access to care 24 hours a day, seven days a week. If you have a medical emergency, Assist America will connect you to medical resources, including doctors, hospitals, and pharmacies.**** Assist America also has translators readily available to assist you.

Extended network access depends on the exact plan your employer chooses to offer.

*UPMC nurses who answer calls are licensed to assist members located in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Ohio. Members must be located in one of those states when calling the UPMC MyHealth 24/7 Nurse Line.

**Patients located in Pennsylvania at the time of service will have a virtual visit with a UPMC-employed provider. Patients outside of Pennsylvania will receive care from a provider employed or contracted by Online Care Network II, P.C. (OCG). OCG is not an affiliate of UPMC.

***For travel that will extend beyond 90 days, you can obtain additional Assist America coverage through the Expatriate/Extended Coverage program. Your dependents who are studying abroad can also use this coverage. Assist America charges a fee for this program.

****Assist America is not travel or medical insurance, and its services do not replace health coverage while you are away from home. All services must be arranged and provided by Assist America. Bills for any medical costs you incur should be submitted to UPMC Health Plan. They will be subject to the policy limits of your health coverage.
