Quality & Affordability

Physicians play a key role in making care decisions and recommendations for their patients.  Decisions on when and where to refer a patient for tests or to a specialist directly affect the subsequent quality and cost of care. CareFirst is committed to providing you with resources and information to supplement your clinical decision-making.

It is our goal to provide you with up-to-date data on laboratory, radiology and ambulatory surgery centers as well as other information to help achieve the compatible goals of improving quality and reducing health care costs.

We will add additional resources and make them easier to use on an ongoing basis.
