The Quality Blue Physical & Occupational Therapy Program (Quality Blue PT/OT) helps physical and occupational therapists identify best practices and promote high-value healthcare for patients, being paid on an enhanced fee schedule for doing so.
Blue Cross worked with therapists around the state to develop Quality Blue PT/OT, examining how to effectively boost patients’ health outcomes and satisfaction with their therapy experiences.
The program uses the Focus On Therapeutic Outcomes, or FOTO, tool to measure an enrolled therapy practice’s outcomes and benchmark these results against national outcomes. Enrolled therapists are reimbursed for services on an enhanced fee schedule, to reward them for taking the extra steps to measure their progress with FOTO and implement best practices to improve patients’ experiences.
Quality Blue PT/OT is open to any Blue Cross Network physical or occupational therapists who are currently using FOTO or are willing to use this or a similar tool that lets them effectively measure outcomes and benchmark them against national data.
Interested providers should contact their Network Development representative or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
