(Jun 24, 2019)

PITTSBURGH, June 24 – Today, state Rep. Adam Ravenstahl, D-Allegheny, issued the following statement regarding the end of the UPMC/Highmark dispute. “Today UPMC and Highmark did the right thing and agreed to a new 10-year deal that will ensure the people of western Pennsylvania will continue to be able to access the doctors and healthcare providers they choose. “As I said earlier this year, it is critical that patients and family members be able to continue to access the doctors and healthcare providers they know and trust, and I am pleased to see that we have obtained that outcome. “This agreement should settle many of the fears and concerns that patients and their families have felt over the last several months. They and the community organizers and activists who stood with them to raise awareness of this issue should be commended, as should those on Attorney General Josh Shaprio’s team who negotiated on their behalf. “While this agreement is a good, new beginning, we as a legislature must address the underlying problems that allowed this situation to develop. We must continue to work to ensure that all Pennsylvanians, regardless of their health insurer are able to access high quality, affordable healthcare.” Read more
