Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (Blue Cross NC) and Quartet announce a new, statewide initiative that will integrate mental health into primary care. Together, we’ll support collaborative teams at the local level, placing both primary care and mental health providers at the center of patient care. This integrated care model will improve access to mental health care, in turn improving patient health outcomes.

This collaboration highlights our commitment to building an innovative strategy to address mental health and substance abuse disorders, and our recognition of Quartet as a key element of our shift to a value-based system. We’ll focus on helping primary care doctors:

  • Identify patients with underlying mental health conditions
  • Connect these patients to the right care, at the right time
