UPMC, Highmark settle bitter standoff
UPMC has agreed to allow some Highmark insurance customers to continue using its doctors and facilities at in-network rates under an agreement announced Friday after a bitter fight between the two western Pennsylvania health care giants. Gov. Tom Corbett and Attorney General Kathleen Kane, whose offices were instrumental in negotiating the deal in a dispute that has roiled western Pennsylvania, announced the deal in a joint Capitol news conference with officials from the two companies. In particular, people undergoing treatment, needing access to unique services or in an area with relatively little health care competition would fall into protected categories.
