Visit our new online magazine Making the Health Care System WorkSM that explores major health care topics in the national news and how we can all work together to improve the health care system. A recent article looks into moving away from the traditional fee-for-service model and toward viewing and paying for all the care associated with a single procedure or condition as one product.
At Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX), we believe that having access to affordable, quality coverage can make a positive and often profound difference in our members' lives.
