Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan is partnering with a provider group that is opening six primary care centers in the state, the insurer said Dec. 14.
BCBS of Michigan is working with Dedicated Senior Medical Centers, a subsidiary of ChenMed, on the centers. ChenMed is a Miami-based organization that offers primary care services to seniors.
BCBS of Michigan members with individual Medicare Advantage plans will be able to access services at the centers. Provider payments will be tied to patients' health outcomes.
The centers will be in Michigan's Wayne County, which includes Detroit, and areas surrounding it. The first four Dedicated centers will open in summer 2021.
