Highmark and UPMC Consent Decree


Highmark and UPMC took a major step toward resolving network participation issues June 27, 2014, by executing a Consent Decree with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Departments of Insurance and Health.

The Consent Decree was executed in response to a Petition for Review filed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania; since the Petition for Review and the Consent Decree were filed and executed simultaneously, it appears that this resolution was the result of previous negotiations precipitated by pressure from Gov. Tom Corbett, the state agencies, and the all too familiar media and political pressures.
