MI Blues reward docs for enhanced access, cutting costs



An incentive program that rewards primary care doctors who better manage patient care and reduce unnecessary claims netted Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan at least $80 million in savings last year, the nonprofit insurer said. The program encourages primary care physicians to take a more active role in the care of their patients, including providing enhanced access to their offices, same-day scheduling and more options for a patient to communicate with the doctor and staff. Participating doctors receive a 10% higher reimbursement rate for patient office visits.
