UPMC Health Plan Earns A- (Excellent) Rating from A.M. Best


PITTSBURGH (March 24, 2015) – UPMC Health Plan has retained its financial strength rating of A- (Excellent) from A.M. Best, the world’s oldest and most authoritative insurance rating and information source.

The A- (Excellent) rating, with a stable outlook, applies to UPMC Health Plan (HMO and commercial plans) and its affiliates, UPMC Health Network (PPO products), UPMC for You (Medicaid), and Community Care Behavioral Health Organization.

The ratings are a reflection of what A.M. Best described as UPMC Health Plan’s “strategic role” as the managed care affiliate of UPMC, a fully integrated health care delivery system that “is formed around one of the nation’s premier academic medical centers.”

“UPMC Health Plan(s) continues to demonstrate solid consolidated underwriting and net income, supplemented by expansion of its geographic footprint outside of its core market of western Pennsylvania,” A.M. Best said in announcing the ratings. The rating service also cited UPMC Health Plan’s “strong membership and premium growth” across its diversified business lines.
