UPMC agrees to make Hillman Cancer Center available to all insurers, including Highmark

PITTSBURGH — UPMC has agreed to make Hillman Cancer Center locations available to all health insurance companies, including all Highmark commercial and Medicare Advantage members, as of Thursday.

According to a tweet, patients can still go to any UPMC Hillman location at currently agreed upon in-network rates after the expiration of the Consent Decrees on June 30.

The move comes a day after UPMC agreed to drop the controversial pre-pay rule for seniors who have Highmark insurance.

"It's another step in the right direction, but we still have more work to do and we continue to negotiate with bith Highmark and UPMC," Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto said.
