UPMC Health Plan Launches Products on the Health Insurance Marketplace

UPMC Health Plan will offer a wide variety of health plans for individuals residing in western Pennsylvania through the newly created Health Insurance Marketplace.

All of UPMC Health Plan's health insurance plans will offer a network of excellent community physicians and hospitals as well as the top-ranked UPMC physicians and UPMC hospitals, according to U.S. News & World Report.

"UPMC Health Plan is proud to offer high-quality plans that offer access to the best doctors and hospitals at affordable prices," said Diane P. Holder, President and CEO, UPMC Health Plan. "We listened to what consumers wanted, and they asked for plans that give them access to UPMC as well as the ability to obtain affordable, predictable out-of-pocket expenses. We are committed to offering long-term value for the region."

There are three things that most people need to look at when they buy a health insurance plan: the monthly premium; the doctors and hospitals included in the network; and the additional costs incurred when seeking care, such as copays, deductibles, and coinsurance.

"Comparing plans can be confusing, and the plan with the lowest premium is not always the best value. It is important when consumers compare plans that they are smart shoppers. UPMC offers copays as low as $0 for PCP visits and no-cost options for medication to help people with chronic conditions," added Ms. Holder. "Because we know insurance choices can be confusing, we have staffed our UPMC Health Plan Connect Service and Sales Centers with experts who can help you understand your options."
