BCBS of Texas and Tenet Healthcare Form Statewide ACO Pact
Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas and Tenet Healthcare agreed on terms to set up a new accountable care organization (ACO) beginning the first of the calendar year, 2015. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas PPO patients will be able to secure care at any of the Tenet hospitals across the state of Texas.
The triple aim of improved outcomes, better patient experience, and cost containment remains the overall goal of the new agreement. The agreement also provides for the possibility that coverage may be extended to patients who take advantage of health insurance marketplaces.
Value-based care has long been a priority for both Blue Cross Blue Shield, as well as Tenet.
