Blue Shield of California, Dominican Hospital and Physicians Medical Group of Santa Cruz County (PMG) today announced a three-year accountable care initiative designed to provide integrated, cost-efficient healthcare to approximately 8,000 Blue Shield HMO members in Santa Cruz County.

About 5,200 of these enrollees are members of the California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS).

The parties expect this collaboration to result in little to no increase in healthcare costs for members in the first year of the collaboration, and low single digit increases in the two subsequent years.
