Accountable Care Organization
BSW Premier HMO
Offering the best of both worlds, the BSW Premier HMO combines our high-efficiency Accountable Care Organization ACO) network models with our broader service area. BSW Premier members have in-network options for care in 141 counties, with additional rate discounts offered in multiple counties in North, Central and West Texas.
How is that possible? We teamed up with Baylor Scott & White Quality Alliance (BSWQA) — the accountable care organization affiliated with Baylor Scott & White Health — and Covenant Health. Together, we created an integrated health solution that combines care, coverage and technology.
BSW Premier is more than just a health plan. It's a unique blend of doctors, hospitals, and an insurance plan, all coming together to better engage members in managing their health. Doctors who are part of the ACOs offered through Baylor Scott & White Quality Alliance and Covenant Health are held accountable for achieving specific quality, patient satisfaction and cost measures. By combining all aspects of health, BSW Premier delivers care and payment more efficiently, offering employers and employees a higher quality care experience at a lower cost.
The result: Members receive the most comprehensive, compassionate and cost-effective care possible.
To get the most out of care coordination, we encourage BSW Premier members to establish a relationship with a primary care physician (PCP) and continue to see them for care. However, members are not required to select or register with a PCP and do not need a referral to see an in-network specialist.
