Washington, DC - U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) released a statement on the latest UPMC/Highmark announcement.
“Today’s announcement is welcome and long overdue news. I commend Governor Wolf and Attorney General Shapiro for their efforts to make this happen and to put an end to the battle between UPMC and Highmark over market share. I appreciate the decision by UPMC and Highmark to prioritize the needs of patients over profit and people over the bottom line. I have long advocated for a result that would put people first and I am pleased that families in Western Pennsylvania will now have the stability and peace of mind they deserve.”
