Blue Physician Recognition for Providers

When you’re searching online for a doctor, you may notice that some primary care physicians and specialists have a Blue Physician Recognition designation.

This program recognizes doctors who show a commitment to quality, patient-centered care based on the program’s guidelines. These guidelines include taking part in recognized national, regional or local quality improvement programs.

What it means

Blue Physician Recognition doctors are dedicated to improving the quality of care for their patients. It doesn’t mean they offer a higher standard of care than other doctors. It just means these doctors take part in the quality improvement program recognized by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan. Doctors may also be involved with other quality improvement programs.

How to get Blue Physician Recognition

To get the Blue Physician Recognition designation, primary care physicians and specialists need to participate in Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan’s Physician Group Incentive Program.
