Bridges to Excellence

December 19, 2012

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) has teamed up with the Health Care Incentives Improvement Institute (HCI3) to launch a new Bridges to Excellence (BTE) program for Asthma Care. This program, which aims to improve asthma care, rewards physicians who gain recognition for the Asthma Care BTE program. BCBSTX will recognize Asthma Care recognized physicians through enhanced reimbursement of CPT code 99367.

Additionally, in order to further reward and recognize the value that physicians who treat diabetes bring to our members, BCBSTX increased the physician incentive amount effective January 1, 2013 for BTE Diabetes Care recognized physicians. The incentive amount increased from $100 per patient per year to $150 per patient per year.
