Highmark Inc. Key Developments
UPMC Presses its Cancer Treatment Claims against Highmark
Apr 28 15
UPMC is continuing to press its cancer treatment claims against Highmark Inc. in Common Pleas Court, backing efforts by state regulators to bring both sides to the negotiating table. In a March 24 ruling, Judge Christine Ward denied UPMC's request to compel arbitration with Highmark over amounts paid to UPMC for chemotherapy treatments. A month later, UPMC spelled out its objections to Ward's ruling in a court filing, writing that Ward had erred in not requiring arbitration because it's a remedy prescribed the consent decrees both sides signed. UPMC has also appealed Ward's ruling to Superior Court. The state Attorney General, Insurance Department and Department of Health on April 27th petitioned Commonwealth Court to force Highmark and UPMC into the bargaining table, saying both sides had 'refused to comply with material terms of the consent decrees'. The petition revealed an utter breakdown in negotiations between the two since the consent decrees were signed in July 2014. Among the Highmark-UPMC failures cited by state regulators in the Commonwealth Court petition: No agreement was reached on emergency room/trauma services, which was required by July 15, 2014. No agreement was reached on protecting seniors from disruption in care from having to switch doctors. No agreement was reached on reimbursement rates for so-called critical access hospitals and doctors. Highmark filed the Common Pleas Court lawsuit to challenge chemotherapy reimbursement rates the carrier said were inflated and unnecessarily increased health care costs without affecting quality of care. At issue are chemotherapy treatment rates when care is provided in a doctor's office rather than a hospital outpatient clinic, which are at least double the rates when compared to a doctor's office.
