Foundations of BlueAlliance & BlueAlliance Care+

BlueAlliance builds on the success of our first patient-centered medical home (PCMH) which piloted in 2005. With a strong focus on prevention, the program incorporates the PCMH model, patient attribution, clinical risk groups and risk adjustments.

BlueAlliance Care+ aligns with BlueAlliance however it is specifically for the Medicaid Expansion population.

Other value-based programs

While BlueAlliance is the solution that addresses North Dakota concerns, it is part of a bigger, nationwide effort of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association to improve health outcomes while containing costs. Each program is tailored to address the needs of the area it serves.
