Beginning in 2012, MCA was positioned to help BCBSMN make an informed decision that would best allow providers to serve their patients. SecureCare was among the finalists that BCBSMN was considering for network management. BCBSMN made its own decision based on SCC’s performance and relationships within the Chiropractic community and their successes in other states. MCA is currently working to assist this transition to limit patient and provider disruption.
