To help patients suffering from substance use disorders find facilities that deliver quality treatment and care, Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association recognizes facilities that meet strict standards for excellent patient care as a Blue Distinction® Center for Substance Use Treatment and Recovery (BDC Substance Use Treatment and Recovery). The Recovery Village in Umatilla, Florida has been recognized as one of the first facilities to receive the Blue Distinction® Center for Substance Use Treatment and Recovery designation. 

Florida Blue Distinction Award

What is a Blue Distinction Center?

Blue Distinction Centers are designated facilities that show a commitment to delivering improved patient safety and better health outcomes, based on objective measures that were developed with input from the community and leading accreditation and quality organizations.

The BDC Substance Use Treatment and Recovery program requires designated facilities to deliver coordinated multidisciplinary care to patients and provide timely access to quality medical and psychosocial care in all phases of treatment. Designated facilities must also offer medication-assisted treatment (MAT) – a way to treat opioid addiction that includes a medication component and behavioral therapy.

The Recovery Village is dedicated to providing comprehensive, evidence-based treatment to patients seeking help with addiction and co-occurring mental health conditions. This distinction demonstrates our commitment to meeting and exceeding the highest standards for patient care.

If you or someone you love is struggling with addiction, contact us to get started on the road to recovery today. If you’re a professional in need of referral information, you can meet our community outreach team to locate a team member in your area or learn more about working with us here.

Blue Distinction Centers (BDC) met overall quality measures, developed with input from the medical community. A Local Blue Plan may require additional criteria for providers located in its own service area; for details, contact your Local Blue Plan. Blue Distinction Centers+ (BDC+) also met cost measures that address consumers’ need for affordable healthcare. Each provider’s cost of care is evaluated using data from its Local Blue Plan. Providers in CA, ID, NY, PA, and WA may lie in two Local Blue Plans’ areas, resulting in two evaluations for cost of care; and their own Local Blue Plans decide whether one or both cost of care evaluation(s) must meet BDC+ national criteria. National criteria for BDC and BDC+ are displayed on www.bcbs.com. Individual outcomes may vary. For details on a provider’s in-network status or your own policy’s coverage, contact your Local Blue Plan and ask your provider before making an appointment. Neither Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association nor any Blue Plans are responsible for non-covered charges or other losses or damages resulting from Blue Distinction or other provider finder information or care received from Blue Distinction or other providers.
