Blue Promise: Doctors Need More Information to Save You Money

A bill in the 85th Legislative Session would have given your doctor more information to save you money.

As it stands now, doctors may not have all the tools they need to compare costs of medical procedures when referring their patients to other providers. A bill designed to help physicians get access to this cost data was introduced in the recent 85th Legislative Session, but it did not make it through the Texas Senate. Lee Spangler, BCBSTX Vice President of Texas Government Relations, walks Dr. McCoy through the process.
