HARRISBURG – Rep. Marci Mustello (R-Butler) today issued the following statement commending UPMC and Highmark for reaching a new 10-year, in-network agreement.
“I am pleased to see that UPMC and Highmark were able to put aside their differences and focus on patient care and providing health care options in western Pennsylvania. This is great news for families, seniors and veterans in our region who can now focus on their health, instead of worrying about their health care provider. I look forward to seeing what innovations these two health care leaders bring to our region.
“I am thankful Highmark and UPMC agreed to work together to ensure patients will not be turned away for quality health care. My hope all along was to find a way to give affected Pennsylvanians peace of mind about their health care options without relying on a legislative solution.”
