Highmark PPO Memo

This new optional PPO Blue program will have the same benefits as Community Blue PPO, but will also include access to UPMC providers. Read More ...

Important Notice:
The UPMC Consent Decree Has Ended July 1st, 2019.

For eligible members, YOU MUST USE COMMUNTIY BLUE IN-NETWORK PROVIDERS to receive the highest level of coverage offered by the Laborers’ District Council of Western Pennsylvania Welfare Plan. Any services received from a UPMC provider is considered to be out-of-network and will have significant costs to you.

Remember to verify that the doctors, other service providers and facilities are Community Blue in-network providers. Using an out-of-network provider will result in a $1,600.00 individual or $3,200.00 family deductible plus additional costs for which you will be responsible. You can avoid these additional costs by using only Community Blue in-network providers. For assistance call the Laborers Combined Funds Employee Benefits Department at 412-263-0900 or do one of the following:

Important Notice:
MedExpress is Refusing to do Wellness Exams

Most MedExpress offices are refusing to do the wellness physicals. Members should contact Highmark member services at (1-866-594-1732) and they will assist them in scheduling a visit to a PCP. Also, they can contact 412 (DOCTORS) between 7 and 11 am and they will schedule them for a same day appointment.

Highmark has been trying to get this resolved but MedExpress's new owners, United Health Care have not been cooperative. Members will need to schedule their Wellness Physical with a PCP to meet their requirements in a timely manner.

We're sorry for the inconvenience.

Highmark is our current insurance carrier. Due to the Highmark-UPMC split, you should check on all your doctors, other service providers and facilities to determine if they are in-network. Visiting an out-of-network physician or facility will result in additional costs being billed directly to you for which you will be responsible. Avoid these extra expenses by using in-network providers. For assistance in determining if a provider is in Highmark's network, or to find an in-network provider use one of the following:
