Highmark and Penn State Health

Advancing healthcare. Together.

Two of the most recognizable brands in Central Pennsylvania, Highmark Blue Shield and Penn State Health, are working to change health care for good.

Keeping your employees healthy and your costs down.

The right care leads to healthier employees and lower costs for your organization. That’s why we're collaborating with programs like True Performance. True Performance is helping primary care providers (PCPs) give care that's tailored specifically to each patient's unique needs. To date, True Performance has helped businesses across the Highmark service area avoid over $260M in costs.

Care for our community

As like-minded organizations with deep ties to PA, we're excited to work together to deliver more accessible and affordable community-based care to the people and businesses that call our region home. This includes investing in primary and specialty practices, such as Andrews Patel Hematology/Oncology, Berks Cardiology, and Schuylkill Valley Family Practice.

Delivering higher-quality care that’s more affordable

Joining forces allows us to advance health care in PA and enables Highmark Blue Shield to develop products and programs that help control costs for individuals and employers alike. Be on the lookout for an innovative new insurance product coming in July 2019.

Investing in research to find new cures and better treatments

This collaboration is helping to establish a medical and translational research consortium that will make the Milton S. Hershey Medical Center and Penn State Children’s Hospital the premier destinations for advanced care in the region.
