The residents in the rural Southwestern PA with UPMC insurance carrier need to travel 30 - 50 miles for medical supplies and services which are in the network. We the undersigned strongly urge that UPMC to include Thomas Medical Supply in the healthcare provider's network as we do not have to travel through the long and narrow roads especially during winter season the road condition is much worst.

The insurers however rather to pay more for the nearest healthcare centers which are closer to their home but not in the UPMC provider list.

Majority of the residents in the rural area are senior citizens and their healthcare should be seriously looked into.

We have to ask UPMC to include Thomas Medical Supply in their healthcare provider list!
