Right Care Program

*Highmark will notify providers when access to the Right Care program metrics are available.


Right Care is a Highmark clinician-led program to reduce clinical variability and improve appropriateness of care. It's done to make sure our members receive the right care, at the right place, and the right time. ​​​​​​​No more, no less.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ Right Care is the clinical approach in helping drive the quadruple aim to improve outcomes, clinician experience, patient experience, and affordability.

Highmark Quadruple Aim

Our mission is to:

  • Ensure all Highmark members receive the right care, at the right place, at the right time.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
  • Reduce overuse of services that expose members to unnecessary risk or cost where there is no net clinical benefit.​​​​​​​
  • Promote increased use of proactive, preventative, and conservative therapies that result in better outcomes.





Right Care's primary intervention is collaborating with providers to drive performance management and behavior change within networks. This could include peer-to-peer coaching, all the way to the development of new care models. Additionally, Right Care engages other departments to drive action in ways such as revising medical policy, inclusion in Value Based Reimbursement (VBR) programs, and other initiatives for improvement.
