  • Highmark customers feel manipulated by Penn:

    For months it has run TV commercials and newspaper ads warning that Highmark insurance customers could lose access to in-network treatment at UPMC on Jan. 1 if they don’t switch insurance plans. Now the company, according to an email Friday from its chief medical officer to its physicians, will launch an outreach campaign this week to tell the Highmark customers who stayed put that they — and their insurance dollars — are welcome at UPMC, so long as those customers are currently under UPMC care.

  • HDL will be laying off staff while in a lawsuit with Cigna:

    Cigna sued HDL last month in federal court, claiming over HDL was involved in a scheme to collect “exorbitant reimbursement rates for thousands of claims,” reported Forbes. The federal investigation, reported by the Wall Street Journal, focuses on $20 kickbacks HDL offered doctors to order tests. HDL has denied the allegations.

  • Cigna working with CT Chamber of Commerce on Critical Choice:

    In a fall enrollment season survey, Cigna discovered that 75 percent of respondents believed that health care costs could ruin their prospects of a secure retirement; while 44 percent worried they won’t have the money to pay for their child’s college education. Cigna’s Critical Choice coverage provides a lump sum payment for covered conditions to help an individual pay medical bills when the unexpected occurs.
