The affiliation agreement between Highmark, Inc. and West Penn Allegheny Health System calls for Highmark to provide $50 million to the ailing health system within the next 180 days. That follows the $50 million grant provided in June when the two announced they intended to join forces, and $100 million -- half of it a grant and the other half a loan -- provided when the two reached an agreement last week.

In addition, the agreement calls for $100 million loans to be advanced on April 1, 2013 and April 1, 2014 plus a $1 million endowment fund for UPE, the new nonprofit parent company formed under the agreement.

The agreement is available for viewing on the Highmark website at
