Consent Decree Newsletters

Both Highmark and UPMC are enforcing the terms of the state initiated Consent Decrees, which means many UPMC Health System claims that used to be covered as ‘in-network’ for Highmark are being processed as ‘out-of-network’.  It is more important than ever that participants with Highmark coverage ensure any care being considered from a UPMC Health System provider is covered under the Consent Decree before receiving care.  If not, participants could be faced with significant out-of-pocket costs that are not covered under their health plan.

We will be providing newsletters here throughout the year with additional information on the Consent Decrees.
