Travel Concierge Program

UPMC for Life members enrolled in an HMO plan have in-network coverage when traveling to Arizona, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. You pay the same cost sharing when seeing providers in these states as you do in-network at home.

Call your Health Care Concierge team before you see a provider so that we can help to coordinate your care. We can help:

  • Locate a provider or pharmacy for you.
  • Schedule a medical appointment for you.
  • Obtain prior authorization for your services as needed.

The Travel Concierge Program applies only in Arizona, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. HMO members will be charged in-network cost sharing for covered services received from any provider that accepts Medicare. PPO plan members will be charged out-of-network cost sharing as applicable for covered services received from nonparticipating providers. All members are charged the applicable cost sharing for emergency and urgent care as listed in the Evidence of Coverage.
