Pittsburgh: Highmark Inc., the region’s largest health insurer, plans to open a retail outlet in the North Hills next year, the first health insurance company to open such a store in Pennsylvania, Highmark announced this morning.

Highmark Direct, as the store will be called, will be at 4885 McKnight Road, in Ross township’s McKnight-Seibert shopping center. It won’t deal with large corporate group plans, but everybody else is invited, including individuals, seniors and small business.

Customers will be able to meet one-on-one with insurance sales associates, or can attend one of the various health seminars that the store intends to schedule. The store will be open Monday through Saturday.
