Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana (BCBSLA) created the Quality Blue Primary Care (QBPC) program in 2011 to improve care and outcomes for high-risk patients. This patient-centered medical home (PCMH) model includes more than 197,000 attributed members and contracts with 668 primary care physicians in Louisiana. In addition to achieving cost savings of over $25 per member per month, to date the program has also led to a 25% improvement in diabetes care, 31% improvement in hypertension care, 40% improvement in vascular disease care, and 69% improvement in kidney disease care.
