Potential Quality of Care (PQoC)

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) Quality Improvement investigates potential quality of care (PQoC) complaints or deficiencies in clinical care, as reported by providers, service coordinators, case management and members or a member’s authorized representative involving Providers that are in the network.
