Highmark to pay docs at WPAHS higher rates

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, January 25, 2013
Over the next five years, West Penn Allegheny Health System's reimbursement rates from Highmark Inc. will rise by $50 million, meaning its hospitals and physicians will be paid more for the services they provide, according to new paperwork submitted to the state Insurance Department and made public Wednesday. The extra $50 million had been offered to WPAHS last autumn, Highmark CEO William Winkenwerder testified in court, as a pot-sweetener that would help seal the merger agreement between the organizations.
