Highmark Review

Highmark has over 35 years of experience in the health insurance industry providing products to customers young and old alike. A recent merger back in 1996 expanded Highmark services from beyond Pennsylvania into the Delaware and West Virginia areas. The company itself is not-for-profit, but they own dental and vision care subsidiaries which are for profit. They also provide medical services with the help of Blue Cross Blue Shield.
