State Health Plan Continues to Include DUHS Providers
As one of the largest providers of health care to members of the State Health Plan, Duke University Health System (DUHS) is committed to caring for those who serve our state. We are dedicated to delivering high-quality, affordable and accessible care to state employees and all of our patients.
DUHS appreciates the state treasurer’s recent decision and announcement that the State Health Plan network will continue including health systems and providers that participate in Blue Options offered by Blue Cross Blue Shield NC. This announcement means DUHS providers will be in-network for state employees in 2020.
In recent years, DUHS has embraced new payment models that emphasize our patients’ health outcomes over the volume of medical services, leading to significant cost reductions for our patients and their insurers. We have also adopted new ways to help our patients understand and prepare for the financial aspects of their care.
We look forward to continuing to serve the 43,000 state health plan employees and beneficiaries who have made DUHS their health care home.
