Highmark Health consulting
Retained on behalf of Highmark Health to provide analysis to the Pennsylvania Insurance Department (PID) requesting modifications of certain conditions in the PID’s 2013 order, which was put in place following the creation of the Allegheny Health Network (AHN) via Highmark’s affiliation with the then-failing West Penn Allegheny Health System. The 2013 order imposed certain restrictions on Highmark’s donations and financial commitments. Submitted multiple analyses to the PID showing that since 2013, Highmark and AHN have made investments to improve the quality of care and expand access to medical care in western Pennsylvania communities. Analyses also demonstrated that AHN has become a stronger provider in an increasingly competitive marketplace, that Highmark’s narrow network products have been gaining volume, and that competition among health insurers in western Pennsylvania has increased. The PID approved Highmark’s request for modification.
