The Blue Physician Recognition (BPR) Program reinforces Blue Plans’ commitment to quality by providing physician quality improvement and recognition information on the Blue National Doctor & Hospital Finder site and FEP online directory. The goal of the program is to provide key information to consumers making healthcare decisions.
A BPR indicator on the National Doctor & Hospital Finder site and FEP online Directory will identify physicians, groups and/or practices who have “demonstrated their commitment to delivering quality and patient-centered care,” as determined by the local Plan.
For the BPR program, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont awards BPR indicators to our physicians (primary care providers and specialists) who have received recognition from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).
NCQA is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to improving health care quality. NCQA recognizes providers with NCQA distinction in key clinical areas. You may find more information about NCQA’s recognition programs at the NCQA Web Site - Consumer Information
