Read how BlueCross BlueShield of Georgia’s Blue Distinction spine centers and Blue Distinction Centers for Specialty Care provide members cost savings for high-quality care with measurable outcomes.
BlueCross BlueShield of Georgia’s Blue Distinction spine centers have almost 20% lower costs of care than other centers. That’s what a new study by HealthCore (a research arm of Anthem, Inc.) found. Our Blue Distinction Centers for Specialty Care were developed to help members find facilities that meet high standards and have better care outcomes — while keeping costs down.
Quality is the focus of these centers. It’s measured by clinical outcomes and other important factors. "Quality matters and studies like this prove that, by working together, we are delivering meaningful and measurable quality outcomes for our members, our partners and our company," said Dr. Craig Samitt, Executive Vice President and Chief Clinical Officer at Anthem.
Blue Distinction centers have to meet quality standards before they can be evaluated for cost efficiency. This way, members can be sure they’re getting high-quality care are a good value.
