Quality Networks & Programs

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana is committed to improving the lives of Louisianians by providing health guidance and affordable access to quality care. We offer large networks throughout the country and participate in programs designed to help you receive quality care from our network doctors and hospitals.

  • Quality Networks - We have broad provider networks. Nearly 9 out of every 10 doctors belong to a Blue Cross network. Our member hospital network includes nearly every full-service, acute care hospital in the state. We consistently rank in the top five among all Blues plans nationwide for provider satisfaction.
  • Access to Care Anywhere in the U.S. - Blue Cross' National Doctor and Hospital Finder at www.bcbs.com helps you find care even when you're out of town.

    You can even find a doctor or hospital on your phone with Blue Cross' National Doctor and Hospital Finder app.
  • Blue Distinction Hospitals - Blue Cross helps you find quality specialty care on a consistent basis with its Blue Distinction® program for hospitals.

    Hospitals can earn the Blue Distinction award by displaying quality in bariatric surgery, cardiac care, knee and hip replacement, spine surgery, complex and rare cancers, and transplants.

  • Quality Initiatives - Blue Cross encourages physicians to provide quality care with programs like Blue Physician Recognition and Physician Quality Measurement. These programs reward doctors and hospitals that meet quality standards. We also license with Bridges to Excellence (BTE), a nationally recognized program that promotes the delivery of safe, effective, efficient care by rewarding physicians with incentives. Blue Cross offers BTE recognition and rewards to both individual providers and clinics with the following provider specialties: Family medicine, General practice and Internal medicine.

    And Blue Cross and HMO Louisiana, Inc. hold four accreditations from URAC, a Washington, D.C.-based healthcare organization that establishes quality standards for the healthcare industry.
