I still remember when Highmark and UPMC were feuding about pricing and UPMC was like "Look either do what we want or we'll just start our own insurance company." And Highmark went "Oh yeah?! Well then we'll...uh....start our own....whole hospital chain...I guess."

So of course they're going to keep monopolizing everything by vertically integrating everything related to health care.

Next, a few of the UPMC urgent care places will have in house pharmacies and you won't even be allowed to use CVS. That's how my last insurance company/hospital network handled things. 3 pharmacies for the whole city and they closed at 5, enjoy.

And yes, fuck them.
