Quality Blue

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana offers Quality Blue, a new series of innovative healthcare quality improvement programs that reward doctors for quality improvements that get better health results for patients while making healthcare more affordable.

Our Quality Blue programs include:

Blue Distinction Specialty Care Program
Blue Distinction Specialty Care recognition is a national program through the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association, recognizing hospitals and medical facilities for their expertise and efficiency in delivering high-quality and patient-centered care.

Physician Quality Measures
The Physician Quality Measurement (PQM) program helps Blue members understand how their doctors compare to other doctors in their area, so they can make more informed decisions about their healthcare services. Star rating data is displayed for some specialty types, based on certain quality measures.

Blue Physician Recognition
Blue Cross network physicians who have achieved certain quality recognitions will have a Blue Physician Recognition indicator displayed next to their names in the network directory.
