PCMH - Changing the Way You Receive Health Care
At Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona (BCBSAZ), we know the important role primary care providers (PCPs) play in your well-being. They help you manage ongoing health issues and life-long conditions like diabetes, asthma, and more.
That’s why we work closely with PCPs and their teams to shape what the future of healthcare looks like.
The providers who have joined us on this journey belong to our Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Program. Together we are focused on helping you get better care that costs less.
