Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts and Northeast Health Systems Physician Hospital Organization Sign Alternative Quality Contract
Date:5/25/2010

Agreement Expands Reach to the North Shore.

Boston, MA (Vocus) May 25, 2010 -- Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, Inc. (BCBSMA) and Northeast Health Systems Physician Hospital Organization, Inc. (NEPHO) today announced that they signed a five-year Alternative Quality Contract (AQC). The agreement marks the first North Shore physician group to adopt BCBSMA’s global payment model that is designed to improve the quality and affordability of health care.

This contract demonstrates the continued commitment between BCBSMA, a locally-based, community-focused health plan, and hospital and physician groups to partner together to help lower health care costs by changing the way we pay for care.

Northeast Health Systems Physician Hospital Organization, jointly owned by Northeast Health System, Inc., parent company of Beverly and Addison Gilbert hospitals, and New England Community Medical Group, represents a network of primary care and specialist providers, and acute inpatient and ambulatory care hospitals including Beverly and Addison Gilbert Hospitals.

The contract with NEPHO includes approximately 278 physicians affecting close to 29,000 BCBSMA members, greatly expanding the AQC’s reach to the North Shore community. With the addition of NEPHO, 23 percent of BCBSMA’s provider network is now in the AQC – providing care for nearly one-third of BCBSMA’s Massachusetts-based HMO members.

“We must work collaboratively to address the rising cost of care and increase the quality of care our members receive,
