The nation’s Blue Cross and Blue Shield plans saw $71 billion in spending directed toward patient-centered, value-based care in 2013, according to an in-house survey released this week.

That $71 billion represents about one-in-five dollars in medical spending in 2013 by the 37 BCBS companies across the nation, an increase of 9% over the $65 billion in value-based care the plans identified in 2012.
