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.

Important Notice:
The Consent Decree is Ending June 2019.

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.

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:
