By Bill Toland / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

If the reimbursement contract between the two companies — which allows Highmark insurance customers to use UPMC health care facilities — continues “beyond Dec. 31, 2014, WPAHS still captures adequate volume to produce positive results and generate the cash flow necessary to meet its obligations while continuing to invest in capital improvements,” the filing says.
