BTE Implementations and Participants

Health Plans and Employers are participating in BTE efforts across the country
There are five types of implementations:

  1. Employer-led implementations: In states like Minnesota, New Jersey, Maine, Pennsylvania, Colorado, and in communities like Cincinnati, Ohio, employers and health plans are working collaboratively to implement one or more BTE Recognition programs. Click here for a review of these implementations.

  2. Multi-plan implementations: In states like North Carolina, Georgia and New York, many of the health plans have created incentives for Recognized physicians. Click here for a review of these implementations.

  3. Single-plan implementations: In states like Oklahoma, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Arizona and Washington, a health plan is actively rewarding Recognized physicians. Click here for a review of these implementations.

  4. National implementations: Health plans such as Aetna, Anthem-Wellpoint, UnitedHealthCare, and CIGNA have included BTE Recognitions as a core component of how they measure physician quality.  As a result, physicians that contract with these plans anywhere in the country might be eligible for special incentives and recognitions.
