Ask: Can the health system make itself better?


We believe it can. See what’s possible when insurers, doctors and hospitals work together to improve health care for everyone.

Introducing Blue Premier. This value-based model of care is a new path forward, one that transforms the relationship between Blue Cross NC and some of the state’s top health systems. With Blue Premier, everyone shares accountability for care and costs.

This innovative program:

  • Provides more resources for care coordination
  • Pays providers for higher quality, lower-cost care to improve our customers’ health
  • Empowers primary care providers to be the hub of patient care

Blue Premier is one important example of how Blue Cross NC is using its experience and expertise to drive health care transformation across the state.

Five of the largest North Carolina hospital systems have already signed Blue Premier agreements:

  • Cone Health
  • Duke University Health System
  • UNC Health Care
  • Wake Forest Baptist Health
  • WakeMed Health & Hospitals

These partnerships were announced at our press conference in January of this year. We hope to add other larger health care systems and independent physician groups very soon.
