Highmark Health Plan Coverage plus or minus
When you receive care from an out-of-network provider, coverage is almost always paid at the lower level - unless it is an emergency or you are referred by Highmark to an out-of-network provider because the non-emergency service is not available from a network provider. That’s why it is critical - in all cases - that you check to see that your provider is in the network before you receive care.
For questions about coverage, or to ensure that your treating physician is a network participating provider for your health plan, call toll free:
• Highmark PPO Blue and Classic Blue members 1-800-5704
• Highmark HMO Plus members 1-800-822-8753
Swift MD plus or minus
SwiftMD members can engage consults with doctors via phone or videoconference. The doctor is able to make a diagnosis and may recommend treatment. SwiftMD doctors can call in prescription when appropriate. As a SwiftMD member, you can talk to a doctor 24/7!
