For Providers: What is Blue Cross Coordinated Care?

Blue Cross Coordinated Care is a personalized care management program available to most patients facing complex health issues. 

How it works

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Care Network identify patients who face complex health issues to take part in the program. Once identified, a registered nurse reaches out to the patient to connect them to an integrated care team assigned to the patient's community.

The care team follows a personalized program set up for each patient, reporting progress to the lead nurse and adjusting the care regimen as needed to improve outcomes.  

The Coordinated Care program also offers each patient easy access to the program through the BCBSM Coordinated Care app. The app can help patients:

  • Make and keep appointments
  • Stay on track with their health regimen
  • Be educated about their condition
  • Get health tips and encouragement
  • Take medications on time
  • Stay in touch with their nurse

Referring patients to Coordinated Care
