Florida Blue, the state's Blue Cross Blue Shield arm, is collaborating with Healthcare Outcomes Performance Co. to address healthcare affordability.
Under the partnership, HOPCo will develop a network of physicians and facilities to participate in its Musculoskeletal Outcomes Management Program and risk-shared incentives, according to a June 29 news release. The program will focus on enhancing the quality and efficiency of care for Florida Blue members.
Eventually, HOPCo and Florida Blue aim to expand to all ICD codes related to prevention and management of musculoskeletal condition care.
"By working with Healthcare Outcomes Performance Company, we look to expand our partnership with musculoskeletal providers to not only slow rising health care costs, but also enable healthier lives for our members," Phil Lee, vice president of strategic provider partnerships at Florida Blue, said in the release.
