PA-based insurer’s CEO says Blues deal could hurt competition

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, January 31, 2008

Although Highmark and IBC have testified that the merger wouldn't reduce competition in the state because the two insurers' geographic footprints don't overlap, Smith said her counterparts were omitting key details.
