MIBAC Quality Improvement Participation

  • Enrollment for Chiropractors is rapidly approaching. Your next opportunity to participate will be for a launch on March 1, 2024. All documentation is due to the Coordinating Center by November 1, 2023. Enrollment only comes once per year, so don't miss your chance to participate, improve outcomes, and earn Value-Based Reimbursement for providing excellent care to your patients.
  • Primary Care Physicians: Enrollment is closed for participation beginning September 1, 2023. However, we will be enrolling again next year for a September 1, 2024 launch with agreements due by May 1, 2024. Want to get on the list for 2024? Please contact your Physician Organization (PO), and we will send you materials two months prior to the due date to make sure you don't miss it! Don't know who to contact? Email us at [email protected] for more information.
  • If you are familiar with the program and wish to participate, you can click below to submit an agreement to participate. If you are not familiar with the program, please email us at [email protected] for more information about the program and the details of participation. In short, participating Primary Care Physicians (PCPs) and Chiropractors complete a form with clinical information about their patient after the first visit for acute back pain, and the patient completes patient surveys via email or text. The clinician must enroll 10 appropriate patients per year. Eligible participants may receive VBR from BCBSM, depending on their program participation and/or performance. More information on Quality Improvement can be found under the "Quality Improvement" tab at the top of the page.
  • Interested in getting involved but not sure you or your organization are ready for Quality Improvement? Clinician spine care training is available free-of-charge on this website (see "Training" in the top bar). This 90-minute training, provided by Spine Care Partners, highlights current evidence-based management of acute back pain. Incentives for completion of the training are available for eligible Primary Care Physicians and Chiropractors. Please contact us for details regarding eligibility.

Thank you!
