UPMC: The countdown begins…

December 1, 2022

Congratulations, brokers! You’ve made it to the home stretch of AEP. Although there’s still plenty of time to close more business, it’s not too early to express how proud UPMC is of the hard work and dedication you’ve shown. We’re excited by the preliminary sales reports, but we know your efforts go beyond numbers. You showed up to the trainings, learned about our new products and benefits, asked the questions you knew beneficiaries would have, studied how we matched up to the competition, spent long days in the car, took the time to understand your clients’ needs… and then some. UPMC appreciates everything that you’ve accomplished thus far.
Below are some resources that may come in handy along with some reminders, as you may see an influx in beneficiaries reaching out, trying to enroll or ask questions last minute.

Plans, benefits, network, and more!

UPMC is seeing that the new PPO Choice Rx and PPO Premier Rx plans in both western and central PA are top choices this year. Make sure to mention these options first. Here are some competitive highlights about these plans:

The new UPMC for Life Flex Spend Card gives members additional dollars to spend however they like on over-the-counter (OTC) products and dental, vision, and hearing services. Click here to view more information about this benefit.

The UPMC for Life provider network includes access to doctors and hospitals in your community, across PA, and out of state, including the high-quality care of UPMC. Check out this provider flier that includes a list of in-network hospitals and facilities by county.

UPMC for Life is the lowest priced, 5-star plan in PA! They've earned an excellent 5 out of 5 overall star rating from Medicare for 2023 for their HMO and PPO plans, received NCQA Accreditation, and been named one of the BEST Medicare Advantage plans in PA by U.S. News & World Report (10-14-22).
