Members Living in Rhode Island

Beginning in January 2016, we’ll be providing claims information for members living in Rhode Island to the Rhode Island All Payer Claims Database (RI-APCD), in accordance with Rhode Island law. Information in this database is completely anonymous—names, addresses, and other personal identifiers are removed.

This database is used to ensure transparency regarding the quality, cost, efficiency, and accessibility of Rhode Island’s health care delivery system. It also provides state agencies and policy makers with the information they need to improve the value of health care for Rhode Island residents.

By December 31, 2015, we’ll begin sending letters to affected members living in Rhode Island to inform them about this database. We’ll also let them know they can choose to have their de-identified claims information kept out of the database by opting out at www.riapcd-optout.com or by calling 1-855-747-3224.

To see the letter we’re sending to impacted members, visit www.bluecrossma.com/ri-apcd. If you have any questions, please contact your account executive.
