Blue Distinction

As a prominent health insurer in the state of Arkansas, we have a unique vantage point to identify healthcare facilities that provide quality, effective and cost-efficient care. Directing you to these facilities is important to ensuring patients receive the best care at the best price. Therefore the Blue Distinction® Specialty Care program, a collaborative effort with other Blue Plans across the country, recognizes high-performing specialty care facilities based on objective, nationally-consistent quality and affordability criteria that point to value and positive health outcomes.

There are two designations within the program:

These hospitals have demonstrated quality care, treatment expertise and, overall, better patient results

These hospitals offer more affordable care in addition to having demonstrated quality care, treatment expertise, and, overall, better patient results

We encourage you to consider these highly-qualified, distinguished centers when searching for specialty care.
