BCBSRI offers LGBTQ Safe Zone certification
BCBSRI encourages its participating providers to collaborate with us in supporting LGBTQ communities. Our goal is to help identify safe healthcare spaces with protections against discrimination and differential treatment, as well as inclusive policies and procedures.
BCBSRI welcomes all healthcare provider sites, including specialist offices and facilities, to pursue LGBTQ Safe Zone certification. Healthcare settings that meet specific criteria are designated as LGBTQ Safe Zones and receive BCBSRI identification, including a customized plaque and a window cling to mark their office(s) as a Safe Zone.
We invite you to consider having your practice site certified as an LGBTQ Safe Zone. To learn more about how to become a certified provider site, please click here, or contact email@example.com. The deadline for this round of applications is August 15.
