Creating value for health care consumers

By Regence | June 17, 2015

Americans need more effective, efficient and coordinated care that helps them get healthy faster and stay healthy longer. That’s why Blue plans across the country are leading a successful transformation of America’s health care system.

The Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association white paper describes how the complex collaboration among public and private sectors, payers, doctors and patients, is paying off in better health and lower costs.

Regence has been working on this model since 2007, collaborating to transform health care and reduce medical costs.  Based on our success, we introduced collaborative plans for employers, called Regence ActiveCare.

Working together, we have to change what we’re doing. Business as usual doesn’t work. People can’t afford it. The U.S. spends $2.9 trillion on health care. That number rose by $1 trillion during the decade we’ve been talking about trying to lower costs.

Learn more about transforming health care delivery by reading the BlueCross BlueShield Association’s white paper.
