Congratulations to these
physician offices who met the qualifications to be designated as a Total Care+ (TC+) provider for 2021.
Identifying TC+ providers
Each year, Independence performs an evaluation of its Total Care (TC) providers for the TC+ designation. TC+ recognizes those TC providers who demonstrate higher quality care at a lower cost than the other TC program participants. Independence's TC+ providers were identified using an established methodology that considered national selection criteria from the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association (BCBSA), an association of independent Blue Cross® and Blue Shield® plans, and a provider's PPO performance in the Quality Incentive Payment System (QIPS) program during measurement year 2019 (top 50 percent in the Quality Performance Measurement score program and top 50 percent in cost efficiency measures).
You can learn more information about the TC/TC+ program in the current
QIPS program manual or on the BCBSA's
Total Care page. For specific provider information, contact
