MIBAC is re-branding! Please see the FAQ section for explanation of our new component names: Training and Quality Improvement . Michigan Back Collaborative (MIBAC) is a statewide quality improvement collaborative focused on better care for low back pain by “first-contact” clinicians – initially primary care physicians and chiropractors. It is one of the newest in the set of statewide collaborative quality improvement programs supported by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (BCBSM)/Blue Care Network (BCN).

More effective care patterns

Better outcomes for patients

Greater satisfaction for clinicians and patients

Please review this blog written by our friends at Michigan Value Collaborative, who has been instrumental to our program over the past year.


“I thought the training was excellent. It strongly reinforced what we already know - that conservative management of low back pain leads to better results, lower cost, and helps patients learn how to self-manage this often chronic recurring problem.”

David Parker, MD

“I am thrilled to be involved in MIBAC because it helps to align the values of excellent patient care with provider decision and reimbursement. It’s an opportunity for providers to control their own destiny by advocating for their patient’s interests.”

James Leonard, DC
