What is Preferred Provider Organization - PPO?
PPO (Preferred Provider Organization) - A health care organization composed of physicians, hospitals, or other providers which provides health care services at a reduced fee. A PPO is similar to an HMO, but care is paid for as it is received instead of in advance in the form of a scheduled fee. PPOs may also offer more flexibility by allowing for visits to out-of-network professionals at a greater expense to the policy holder. Visits within the network require only the payment of a small fee. There is often a deductible for out-of-network expenses and a higher co-payment.
PPO for Individuals is a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO). This plan offers you the flexibility of going in-network or out-of-network for medical care. If you go to a physician, specialist or hospital that is in our network (a preferred or participating provider), you receive more savings and benefits. You have the option of receiving from a non-preferred provider, however, and in those cases the plan pays at a reduced level. With PPO, you choose which provider you want to see each time you need care.
