Fox attorney William Maruca was quoted in the Pittsburgh Business Times’ article, “Highmark settles suit.” The article, by Kris B. Mamula, appeared on January 4, 2008.

Maruca, who represents the Allegheny County Medical Society, commented on the recent settlement by Highmark, Inc., a Blue Cross Blue Shield plan. Highmark agreed to pay “$9.9 million and will change the way it does business with doctors, including how appeals are handled, to settle a class action lawsuit that was filed in 2003 against Blue Cross Blue Shield plans nationwide, according to terms of a preliminary agreement.”

Said Maruca, “The news is the reforms Highmark has agreed to adopt….The major impact will be in improving the way Highmark deals with physicians.”
