Here is a link to the article from Philly.com. Health Partners Plans (formerly Health Partners of Philadelphia Inc.) operated Medicare advantage plans 6 years ago which were sold to Elder Health (which moved to Bravo, then HealthSpring and now Cigna HealthSpring). They have now filed with CMS for new plans for 2014.

Here is the story from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Highmark is the largest health insurer in Pennsylvania and an affiliate of the BlueCross and BlueShield Association. The closing of the deal with Jefferson, valued at $350 million, gives Highmark an anchor hospital in the South Hills of Pittsburgh. Highmark is also trying to finalize an approximately $1.1 billion acquisition of the West Penn Allegheny health system. The West Penn deal is pending regulatory approval of the PA State DOI.
In unveiling his budget, PA Governor Tom Corbett revealed that PA will not participate in Medicaid expansion in its current form, but seemed open to compromise on this issue. Here is the story for the Patriot News in Harrisburg, PA.
Highmark is selling off their Medicare claims processing business in order to clear a regulatory path regarding their acquisition of West Penn Allegheny. It appears that Highmark is more interested in vertical expansion within the health care space than growing horizontally with ancillary Medicare service businesses. A Highmark EVP is quoted as saying that they plan to expand more into the medical provider business.
