I am really furious with UPMC and all of its lies. It is going to deny access to Highmark subscribers in 2015. It claims Highmark is going to charge more for UPMC services. Highmark is paying the bill and all that its subscribers are paying is a copay. Why should UPMC care if Highmark charges a higher copay and I elect to pay it to have access to UPMC physicians? UPMC’s claims are ridiculous.
UPMC’s main objective is to drive Highmark out of business. It resents the fact that Highmark purchased Allegheny Health Network. UPMC wants a monopoly on hospital ownership and now health insurance.
Don’t tell me to switch my insurance to Aetna, Cigna, HealthAmerica, United Healthcare or UPMC Health Plan. I don’t want them.
I want my Highmark insurance and access to UPMC doctors. Don’t send me letters asking me to donate money to UPMC urology and cancer departments and then deny me access to UPMC doctors.
UPMC doesn’t care about Highmark patients. If it truly did, it wouldn’t be doing this.
