Blue Physician Recognition Program
HMSA participating providers participate in a variety of quality programs based
on national standards. These programs are designed to ensure that you receive quality,
evidence-based care (see the links below to learn more about these quality programs).
To help keep you informed about the quality of the care available and enable you
to make informed health care decisions, HMSA is working with the Blue Cross and
Blue Shield Association on some new initiatives.
HMSA is excited to bring the new Blue Physician Recognition (BPR) Program to Hawaii.
BPR reinforces HMSA’s commitment to quality by providing information on physician
quality improvement and recognition through the Blue National Doctor & Hospital
Finder site and Federal Employee Plan (FEP) online directory.
Any individual provider, group, or practice’s participation in HMSA’s pay-for-performance
quality improvement programs – and in national or regional improvement and/or recognition
programs – may be acknowledged through the BPR Program. Access to this key information
about HMSA participating primary care providers and specialists will help members
make informed health care decisions.
