Our customers are the center of everything we do

The customers of our companies are the center of everything we do. They include individuals, businesses, and government entities, which rely on us for our extraordinary experience in the health care industry and the exceptional products, services, and solutions we bring to the marketplace.

Getting health care right

The Highmark Health organization is focused on getting health care right. We are transforming health care by connecting care and coverage through new models that deliver greater value and a better health care experience to our customers. We are boldly challenging the health care of the past, and reinventing it in new ways that work better now and will be sustainable for generations to come—providing improved access, higher standards of quality and safety, greater affordability and better health outcomes.

More than a 150-year legacy

Though Highmark Health as an organization is relatively new (2013), some of our affiliates and their predecessors have proud legacies of more than 150 years of providing care and philanthropy in the community. This tradition of giving back, reinvesting and ensuring that our communities remain strong and healthy is deeply embedded in our culture, and we are proud to continue to meet many modern needs within the communities we serve.
