How EPO Blue Works

Highmark EPO Blue members have coverage that goes where they go.

Getting in-network care

With EPO Blue, members must receive care from in-network providers. The network includes high-quality community hospitals as well as specialists — from women’s health to pediatrics, cancer care to neurology. 

Note, with EPO plans, members have no out-of-network benefits. That means if they go to an out-of-network provider, they’ll pay 100% of the cost. The exception is emergency care — it’s always covered at the in-network level.

A nationwide network

Members have access to the largest hospital and physician networks in the U.S. with more than 1.8 million providers, including 97% of all hospitals.This means that no matter where they are, they can always find a provider close by.

Worldwide coverage

Highmark members have access to top doctors, hospitals, and clinics around the globe. The Blue Cross Blue Shield Global Core® program offers coverage in 190 countries.*
