State Legislation Offers Opinion into Highmark-UPMC Dispute

This summer, a major medical insurance company and a largehealthcare provider in western Pennsylvania have been in the midst of tense contract negotiations.  If negotiations fail, many patients in western Pennsylvania may lack the access to healthcare that they had previously relied upon.  Earlier in the summer, our blog had highlighted the larger points of this dispute and recently, PA congressmen have stepped in to add their perspective and opinion on the matter.  Both State and House members have offered to meet with both parties to discuss options and reach a favorable solution for both parties.  Highmark and UPMC have both agreed to meet with the lawmakers.

Attorney Doug Stoehr is a lawyer serving western and central Pennsylvania who specializes in personal injury. If you would like to set up a consultation with him involving a possible personal injury claim, please contact our law office.
