Answer: Yes. There are multiple UPMC hospitals that will remain in-network in 2019 for Highmark insurance plans. View which hospitals are included here.
In January of this year, Highmark and UPMC announced an agreement to continue access to UPMC providers for Highmark members with Commercial group coverage who need access to critical, unique services, including certain transplant services. This agreement also affects cancer patients and areas where there are not many other feasible options for access to non-UPMC providers. As always, it is best to check with your insurer on the status of a provider in which you wish to receive care prior to obtaining services from that provider.
