Health insurance giant Highmark Inc. plans to acquire the West Penn Allegheny Health System , then partner with another health system to run what is the region's second biggest hospital network, according to a state official.
The fact is that UPMC risked losing their own patients to another health system by not renewing their contract with Highmark; Highmark did not deny UPMC these customers access to UPMC; they offered to renew the contract with UPMC - no, instead UPMC denied them access by not accepting their Highmark health care coverage in this their decision. Putting these patients in a difficult position of having to leave their UPMC PCPs or switch to UPMC health insurance, thus taking business away from Highmark- not to mention all of UPMC's negative ad campaignes. And it is all ridiculous - haven't we all had enough already!! No, UPMC is not acting in the public's or their patient's best interest in this regard!
