Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana is proud to introduce Quality Blue: the “umbrella” name for our new series of innovative healthcare quality programs.
The first of these is our Physician Recognition Program, which is based on the nationally recognized Bridges to Excellence (BTE), a nationally recognized quality rewards initiative. Blue Cross is the first health plan in Louisiana to offer BTE’s ground-breaking concept of rewarding physicians for delivery of high-quality healthcare.
Physicians choose a program, then collect and submit medical record data to a BTE-approved performance assessment organization (PAO) for scoring. The physician or clinic receives BTE recognition if scores meet or exceed the minimum cumulative score.
Furthermore, Blue Cross will reimburse physicians for any affiliated license and/or application fees if they achieve one of the above-listed recognitions (not to exceed $480 per physician per program).
Blue Cross also will reward network physicians annually based on the level of BTE recognition achieved.
To learn more about the Quality Blue Physician Recognition Program, please watch Quality Blue 101 or download our brochure. If you have any questions, please contact your Blue Cross Network Development Representative.
The second initiative of our Quality Blue program is practice-specific Physician Quality Performance Reports for our network providers. Use the guide below developed by INGENIX for more information on understanding your Physician Quality Performance Report.
