Frances’ Story

I am 72 years old and have been going to Hillman Cancer Center for 7 years.  I can’t imagine that I won’t be able to see the doctor and nurses who I have entrusted in my treatment/care.  As a senior, it is hard to switch doctors/hospitals and try and find someone who has the same compassion and trust that you have built and gotten used to.  Not all doctors are the same.  Why should I be punished because of UPMC’S  greed and goal to monopolize the insurance market?  I should have the choice to go wherever I want and be in-network so that I am not charged an abundance for being out-of-network.  Highmark is within budget for me and my husband, who is a veteran, and we cannot afford UPMC insurance.
