Centers of Excellence (COE)

Highmark Delaware has designated certain health care facilities within their provider network as Centers of Excellence, or simply COE Facilities. Centers of Excellence have been identified as delivering high quality services and superior outcomes for specific procedures or conditions. This means improved outcomes and reduced cost, which includes delivering surgery and post-operative care more efficiently and with lower risk of complications and readmissions. Get the quality of care you and your family deserve!

The following services are covered under the State of Delaware Group Health Insurance Program (GHIP).
Note: Highmark refers to COE facilities as Blue Distinction Centers.
