Provider Race and Ethnicity

BCBSRI is actively pursuing National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Health Equity Accreditation. This accreditation helps demonstrates our commitment to health equity and ensuring our members have access to quality and equitable care. To build a better system that addresses inequities, we are committed to gathering information and data from our providers, to better understand the healthcare needs of our members. We will soon begin publishing provider race and ethnicity in our Find a Doctor provider directory on bcbsri.com. In addition to provider languages that are currently displayed, the information to be published is obtained from the provider’s entry via the voluntary disclosure on the Council for Affordable Quality HealthCare (CAQH) database.
