Pittsburgh-based insurer Highmark Inc., which has a significant presence in Central Pennsylvania, has received the National Business Group on Health's third annual “Innovation in Reducing Health Care Disparities” award.

Highmark was one of three national employers, and the only Blue Cross and Blue Shield plan in the country, to receive the honor. The other two honorees were Prudential Financial and Aetna.

In addition to its work with members and providers, Highmark's employees receive ongoing diversity and inclusion training. The company provides its employees with an online database of cultural information to increase the capacity and skills needed to address the health care needs of all individuals Highmark serves.
