Some of Pennsylvania’s top insurers were put on notice Monday by the state’s chief law enforcement official.

“We need to make sure UPMC and Highmark are held accountable to our state laws,” he said. “Anyone who injects confusion in the marketplace, who makes it difficult for seniors to access care, who create issues utilizing your money, my money, tax money in order to put money in their pockets...we’re going to have something to say about that.”
