HMO or PPO?
- HMO: assigns a primary health care physician (PCP, or family doctor) and an independent physician association (IPA, or medical group) and requires you to stay in the network. When seeing a specialist, having lab work done, or going to the hospital, you must have a referral from your primary care physician first.
- PPO: allows you to visit whichever in-network physician or healthcare provider you wish to see without first requiring a referral from a primary care physician. However, it is important that you check to see if your provider accepts your health plan so you can receive the highest level of benefits. Generally, in-network services will be covered at a higher benefit level than out-of-network services.
