The idea is simple: Combine knowledge and expertise to provide high-quality care.
Because UPMC Health Plan is part of the world-class academic medical center known as UPMC, we can offer our members access to top-ranked care and world-renowned innovation in addition to high-quality community providers.
What do we mean by top-ranked care? UPMC consistently appears on the annual U.S. News & World Report Honor Roll of America's Best Hospitals.
Nearly 400 UPMC physicians have been recognized as 2022 "Top Doctors" across more than 60 different specialties. UPMC doctors represent more than half of the physicians listed in Pittsburgh. These physicians are part of the Top Doctors® list, which is compiled by Castle Connolly. The Castle Connolly Top Doctor selection process is entirely merit-based. Doctors cannot pay to be listed. Castle Connolly’s peer-to-peer nominations and rigorous research process ensure only the most qualified physicians are included.
Members of UPMC Health Plan also have access to global emergency travel assistance services through Assist America.* These services can be used if you experience an emergency while traveling more than 100 miles from home—including to another country—for less than 90 days. Assist America can connect you and your covered family members to doctors, hospitals, pharmacies, and more.
*All services must be arranged and provided by Assist America. Bills for any medical costs incurred should be submitted to UPMC Health Plan. They will be subject to the policy limits of your health coverage. Assist America is not travel or medical insurance, and its services will not replace health coverage while you and your dependents are away from home.
No matter where life takes you, you can count on UPMC Health Plan for access to high-quality health care. If you need urgent care while you are traveling outside of our service area, you can visit a provider through a national extended network. This network includes urgent care facilities, thousands of hospitals, and more than 900,000 health care professionals across the country. It is included in all of our plans, so you do not need to select it when you enroll in coverage.
Access to a quality network of health providers is important to us because the health of our members is central to everything we do.
