Members who have been continuing to receive a course of treatment for a chronic or persistent medical condition with a UPMC physician can only receive this care from those UPMC providers at the in-network level of benefits through June 2019.
That is when the Consent Decree between Highmark and UPMC will end. You should transition to Allegheny Health Network (AHN) providers to avoid all out-of-network costs.
Should you choose to continue to receive care from UPMC providers after the consent decree ends, you will be responsible for all costs associated with receiving this out-of-network care.
