At BCBSAZ Health Choice Pathway, we are committed to a collaborative approach with physicians, hospitals, and all other providers in the medical communities we serve.
Our team brings an open vision to Arizona. We believe that those who provide care should be the leaders in creating and constructing new, better, and less invasive mechanisms for the delivery of the care they provide. We are provider-owned and we understand both the rewards and difficulties of managed care and health plan/provider relationships.
We believe our members deserve the highest quality medical care while being treated with both compassion and respect. Assisting you so that you can devote your time to providing quality patient care is one of our highest priorities. Our commitment to you is to support the doctor-patient relationship by streamlining the delivery of care.
