Tennessee Healthcare Innovation Initiative - Episode of Care (Commercial)

Led by the state of Tennessee, the Tennessee Healthcare Innovation Initiative (THCII) was created to lower costs and improve health care for Tennesseans. The program is designed to shift the health care system from volume-based to value-based, while protecting our members’ physical and financial health by reducing ineffective or inappropriate treatments. In turn, doctors and hospitals are rewarded for delivering high quality, efficient medical care.

BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee is expanding the THCII Episode of Care program to State Employee Health Plan (SEHP) and Fully Insured (FI) members who use Blue Network SSM. The performance period for SEHP begins Jan. 1, 2017, and is a Rewards-only program.
