Pittsburgh's North Hills To Get The Blues
Highmark Inc., the Pittsburgh region's largest health insurer, plans to open a retail outlet in the North Hills next year, according to an article in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, One of America's Great Newspapers.
Highmark Direct, as the store will be called, will be at 4885 McKnight Road, in Ross township's McKnight-Seibert shopping center. It won't deal with large corporate group plans, but everybody else is invited, including individuals, seniors and small business.
Great! Since fewer people will be employed and will therefore be unable to obtain health care through their employers, it's good to know that Highmark's looking out for the little guy. I mean, they could have located right next to Tiffany's at Ross Park Mall.
Plus, there's an H & R Block office at McKnight-Seibert, so you can get your tax refund check and sign it right over to Highmark, saving you a stop on your way home from the day's job hunt.
Now hold still. This might hurt a little.
