As it stands now, doctors may not have all the tools they need to compare costs of medical procedures when referring their patients to other providers. A bill designed to help physicians get access to this cost data was introduced in the recent 85th Legislative Session, but it did not make it through the Texas Senate. Lee Spangler, BCBSTX Vice President of Texas Government Relations, walks Dr. McCoy through the process. Blue Promise is an online video blog that aims to address complicated health issues with candid conversations from subject matter experts. New editions are published regularly and are hosted by Dr. Dan McCoy, President of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas.
