Organized Systems of Care

An Organized System of Care is a community of primary care and specialty physicians, along with care providers in hospitals and other facilities, who work together to coordinate care across all care settings for their patients. OSC providers streamline care, reduce repeated tests and labs, and make the system work better for patients.

OSCs are like Accountable Care Organizations, but with flexibility in how caregivers are identified, defined and organized. Today there are 38 OSCs across the state, with over 17,000 participating physicians covering 1.36 million attributed members.

Blue Cross currently offers the Blue Cross® Physician Choice PPO product based on our Organized System of Care (OSC) program platform within Michigan. Physician Choice PPO is an innovative product that provides members with unique access to the entire PPO network while offering lower out-of-pocket costs when members choose to coordinate care through OSCs.
