Blue Distinction® Centers for Bariatric Surgery
Your Participating Provider Directory
This Provider Directory is your guide to facilities that have been designated as Blue Distinction Centers or Blue Distinction
Centers+. We are continually updating this list. If you do not see a particular healthcare provider listed, need additional
information regarding a provider or have any questions about your specific benefits, please call the customer service
number on the back of your identification card.
A provider’s participation in the program is subject to change. To verify this information, please contact the provider before
you receive medical services.
If this is an emergency, please proceed to the nearest healthcare facility with an emergency department.
Blue Distinction Centers
When it comes to your health and healthcare, the choices you make matter. Blue Distinction Centers can help you and
your doctor have a better-informed discussion about finding the right hospital for the specific procedure you need.
Blue Distinction Centers
The Blue Distinction Center program was developed with input from the medical community and evaluates hospitals on
their ability to deliver high quality and safe specialty care based on criteria that directly impact patient results – e.g.,
surgical team expertise and a history of better outcomes for patients.
Blue Distinction Centers+
Blue Distinction Centers+ not only meet the same quality criteria as Blue Distinction Centers, but they also go a step
further. Hospitals receiving a Blue Distinction Center+ designation are also measured on how efficiently they deliver this
high-quality patient care.
To see a list of the specific selection criteria used to evaluate facilities for the Blue Distinction Centers for Bariatric
Surgery recognition, please visit www.bcbs.com/bluedistinction.
*This hospital indicated voluntarily that Radiologists, Anesthesiologists, Pathologists, Hospitalists, and Intensivists who provide services for elective (scheduled) procedures related to this
Blue Distinction Specialty Care program are in the local Plan’s BlueCard PPO network.
Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, an association of independent Blue Cross and Blue Shield Companies.
Blue Distinction Centers (BDC) met overall quality measures for patient safety and outcomes, developed with input from the medical community. Individual outcomes may vary. A Local
Blue Plan may require additional criteria for facilities located in its own service area; for details, contact your Local Blue Plan. Blue Distinction Centers+ (BDC+) also met cost measures that
address consumers’ need for affordable healthcare. Each facility’s cost of care is evaluated using data from its Local Blue Plan. Facilities in CA, ID, NY, PA, and WA may lie in two Local Blue
Plans’ areas, resulting in two evaluations for cost of care; and their own Local Blue Plans decide whether one or both cost of care evaluation(s) must meet BDC+ national criteria. National
criteria for BDC and BDC+ are displayed on www.bcbs.com. For details on a provider’s in-network status or your own policy’s coverage, contact your Local Blue Plan and ask your provider
before making an appointment. Neither Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association nor any Blue Plans are responsible for non-covered charges or other losses or damages resulting from Blue
Distinction or other provider finder information or care received from Blue Distinction or other providers.

Blue Plan may require additional criteria for facilities located in its own service area; for details, contact your Local Blue Plan. Blue Distinction Centers+ (BDC+) also met cost measures that
address consumers’ need for affordable healthcare. Each facility’s cost of care is evaluated using data from its Local Blue Plan. Facilities in CA, ID, NY, PA, and WA may lie in two Local Blue

Blue Plan may require additional criteria for facilities located in its own service area; for details, contact your Local Blue Plan. Blue Distinction Centers+ (BDC+) also met cost measures that
address consumers’ need for affordable healthcare. Each facility’s cost of care is evaluated using data from its Local Blue Plan. Facilities in CA, ID, NY, PA, and WA may lie in two Local Blue

Blue Distinction Centers (BDC) met overall quality measures for patient safety and outcomes, developed with input from the medical community. Individual outcomes may vary. A Local
Blue Plan may require additional criteria for facilities located in its own service area; for details, contact your Local Blue Plan. Blue Distinction Centers+ (BDC+) also met cost measures that
address consumers’ need for affordable healthcare. Each facility’s cost of care is evaluated using data from its Local Blue Plan. Facilities in CA, ID, NY, PA, and WA may lie in two Local Blue
Plans’ areas, resulting in two evaluations for cost of care; and their own Local Blue Plans decide whether one or both cost of care evaluation(s) must meet BDC+ national criteria. National
criteria for BDC and BDC+ are displayed on www.bcbs.com. For details on a provider’s in-network status or your own policy’s coverage, contact your Local Blue Plan and ask your provider
before making an appointment. Neither Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association nor any Blue Plans are responsible for non-covered charges or other losses or damages resulting from Blue
Distinction or other provider finder information or care received from Blue Distinction or other providers.
