Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona (BCBSAZ) and HonorHealth have a renewed network agreement that demonstrates a shared commitment to the health of Arizonans. Through this contract, BCBSAZ PPO, Statewide HMO and Alliance HMO members with coverage through their employers will continue to have in-network coverage for HonorHealth facilities and providers. The agreement also contains a value-based reimbursement component that rewards HonorHealth for providing higher quality and more efficient healthcare to BCBSAZ members.

Together, HonorHealth and BCBSAZ are working to make Arizona a healthier place to live. Through programs focused on quality and a commitment to community, the two Arizona-based organizations share strategies that address crucial health needs.

Specifically, BCBSAZ and HonorHealth work jointly on initiatives to improve chronic conditions, including Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) programs. To date, the PCMH collaboration has positively influenced health outcomes for 7,200 heart failure, coronary artery disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes, asthma, and hypertension patients.

“Renewing our agreement with HonorHealth allows both our organizations to continue to do the good work our plan members have come to rely on for improved health,” said BCBSAZ Chief Medical Officer and Healthcare Strategist Dr. Woodrow Myers, Jr. “It’s these local and trusted relationships that help BCBSAZ improve the quality of life for our members and the community.”
