Let me get this clearly in my mind. UPMC is complaining that it is not as profitable as it was before ("UPMC Operating on Narrower Margin," Feb. 7)? I was under the impression that it is supposed to be a "non-profit" organization. Of course, the UPMC Health Plan makes huge profits, so where is the poverty UPMC is claiming? It is a monopoly, after all.
