Nearly 400 UPMC physicians were recognized as 2023 "Top Doctors" across more than 60 different specialties. UPMC doctors represented more than half of the physicians listed in Pittsburgh. These physicians were part of the Top Doctors® list, which was compiled by Castle Connolly. The Castle Connolly Top Doctor selection process is entirely merit-based. Doctors cannot pay to be listed.

1095-B tax forms

As of January 2020, the Internal Revenue Service no longer requires you to file the 1095-B form as part of your federal tax return because Congress eliminated the tax penalty for failing to meet the individual mandate. UPMC Health Plan will no longer mail the form to you, but you can easily obtain an electronic copy by visiting MyHealth OnLine for quick and convenient access. Search under Forms and Guides then navigate to Plans and Coverage.

You may also request a printed copy of your 1095-B form by:

  • Mailing your request to Attn Enrollment, UPMC Health Plan, 600 Grant Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15219.
  • Submitting a request online by filling out our 1095-B contact form or emailing your request to Please include your member ID, name, and tax year being requested.

Please note: With the exception of members of Congress or designated Congressional staff, the Health Insurance Marketplace does not affect FEHB Program enrollees. For additional information, visit OPM's website.

Members located outside of Pennsylvania at the time of service or those who select Talk Therapy or Psychiatry services will receive care from a provider employed or contracted by Online Care Network II P.C. (OCN), also known as Amwell Medical Group. OCN is not an affiliate of UPMC. Limitations may apply for members of ASO plans that have opted out of coverage. Providers are not available to treat members who are in Puerto Rico.

2UPMC nurses who answer calls are licensed to assist members in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, New York, and Ohio. Members must be in one of those states when calling the UPMC MyHealth 24/7 Nurse Line. The UPMC MyHealth 24/7 Nurse Line is not a substitute for medical care. If an emergency arises, call 911 or go to the emergency department. Nurses cannot answer plan or benefit questions.
