Preventive Health Guidelines
Highmark continually strives to enhance the quality of care and service to our members. One of the ways this is accomplished is via the Highmark Preventive Health Guidelines. The guidelines are reviewed annually and updated to ensure they remain current with national guidelines, as well as with national, regional and local standards of medical care. The guidelines are distributed to the practitioner community as a reference tool to encourage and assist you in planning your patients’ care. Coverage of the preventive/wellness benefits are subject to the terms of the member’s benefit plan.
To help make the information more accessible and convenient for you, the complete set of Preventive Health Guidelines are available here on the Provider Resource Center under EDUCATION/MANUALS.
