Enhanced Quality, Increased Savings
Our Blue High Performance Network (BlueHPN) is designed to deliver greater value for your groups and their employees. We select providers for BlueHPN that are focused on delivering quality care, with a network that provides an average of more than 10% savings1 compared to the PPO.
BlueHPN is available in more markets nationwide than our competitors, with portable access across over 55 major markets. When inside an HPN service area, members have access to care from any BlueHPN provider with no primary care physician (PCP) selection or referrals needed. When traveling outside an HPN service area, members have access to emergent and urgent care through a network of Blue Cross and Blue Shield providers.
Providers in BlueHPN are measured on a consistent set of quality metrics across four key domains central to better overall care delivery:
- Appropriateness of care to reduce harm and waste
- Best practice adherence to support guideline-based treatment
- Health management to promote preventive care and chronic condition management
- Outcomes to measure effective care delivery
Providers are measured across these domains through a set of eight national and eight local metrics from industry-respected sources2, creating consistency across markets while addressing key health care issues in local markets.
With BlueHPN, members have in-network-only3 access to quality care through a network that offers an average of more than 10% in additional savings as compared to our already industry-leading PPO. BlueHPN is a great option to help employers tailor benefit offerings to maintain access to high quality providers while being conscious of cost objectives.
