If there’s one constant in health care, it’s change. UPMC’s investment in south-central Pennsylvania has brought positive change to our region, including new, highly specialized services, thousands of new providers, and leading-edge technology to treat the most advanced diseases. However, even positive change can cause confusion. I’d like to take a moment to clarify a question involving health insurance plans accepted at UPMC Pinnacle.

UPMC Pinnacle hospitals and outpatient clinics continue to accept most major insurance plans including Aetna, Capital Blue Cross, Highmark, and UPMC Health Plan for all services. Changes in the relationship between Highmark and UPMC in the greater Pittsburgh and Erie areas will not affect the relationship between UPMC Pinnacle and Highmark.

We look forward to continuing to care for all of our patients in 2019 and beyond. To learn more about full, in-network access to UPMC doctors and hospitals, call our toll-free help line at 1-833-879-5013 or visit
