Buying Insurance

Here's the plan to find the right health plan

Buying health insurance may be less exciting than buying plane tickets or even a new pair of shoes. But, as you know, it's important.

The good news: It's easy to find and buy UPMC Health Plan coverage that fits your needs. You can shop during the Open Enrollment period or during a Special Enrollment Period if you've experienced a qualifying event.

Use our shopping tool to find the right plan for you. Here's how:

  1. Tell us who needs insurance. Are you shopping just for yourself, or do you want to include other family members? Some additional basic information can help us streamline your results even more.
  2. Find out if you can get a tax credit. Our calculator can show how likely you are to qualify for a government tax credit* toward your health care plan.
  3. When you see your results, you can choose whether to shop on the Federally Facilitated Marketplace website or continue shopping with UPMC Health Plan.
  4. Add some family details for each person you want to include on your plan.

That's it! We'll narrow down the plans based on what you told us. You can always choose to see every plan.

Looking for shopping assistance? You can schedule an in-person or virtual appointment with one of our Connect Centers for one-on-one enrollment help.

Let's go shopping!

*Under the health care reform law, the federal government offers discounts (subsidies) on health insurance for qualifying individuals/families. Find out if you qualify by using the Federally Facilitated Marketplace website.
