Blue Distinction Centers and Blue Distinction Centers+
Hospitals may all look the same, but the fact is there are often differences in the quality of care patients receive depending on the facility they choose. That’s why Blue Cross and Blue Shield companies have identified Blue Distinction Centers and Blue Distinction Centers+ for our members. Blue Distinction Centers® are hospitals recognized for their expertise in delivering specialty care and Blue Distinction Centers+ are hospitals recognized for their expertise and efficiency in delivering specialty care.

Blue Distinction Centers (BDC) met overall quality measures for patient safety and outcomes, developed with input from the medical community. Blue Distinction Centers+ (BDC+) also met cost measures that address consumers’ need for affordable healthcare. Individual outcomes may vary. National criteria is displayed on www.bcbs.com. A Local Blue Plan may require additional criteria for facilities located in its own service area. For details on Local Blue Plan Criteria, a provider’s in-network status, or your own policy’s coverage, contact your Local Blue Plan. Each facility’s cost of care is evaluated using data from its Local Blue Plan. Facilities in CA, ID, NY, PA, and WA may lie in two Local Blue Plans’ areas, resulting in two evaluations for cost of care; and their own Local Blue Plans decide whether one or both cost of care evaluation(s) must meet BDC+ national criteria. Neither Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association nor any Blue Plans are responsible for damages or non-covered charges resulting from Blue Distinction or other provider finder information or care received from Blue Distinction or other providers.
