UPMC & Highmark Go To War

PITTSBURGH (NEWSRADIO 1020 KDKA) — Pittsburgh’s two health insurance giants are going to war – and you’re in the cross hairs.

UPMC is not happy that Highmark wants to buy the West Penn Allegheny Health System, so they’re making it very hard for Highmark customers to use UPMC doctors, among other pressure tactics. What will all this mean for you when the dust settles?

KDKA AM’s Larry Richert talks to Doug Moore, a member of the Pittsburgh Association of Health Underwriters and Employee Benefits Consultant for Seubert and Associates, who has been observing what is happening and how it will affect you and the future of health care in our region.
