PPO Insurance Quotes
What is a PPO? Preferred Provider Organization
A type of health plan that contracts with medical providers, such as hospitals and doctors, to create a network of participating providers. You pay less if you use providers that belong to the plan’s network. You can use doctors, hospitals, and providers outside of the network for an additional cost.
An advantage of PPO insurance plans is that it allows members to schedule appointments and receive treatment from specialists without having to obtain a referral from a primary care provider. This advantage means faster treatment for complex issues, because a specialist can be consulted immediately at a lower cost, because money is not spent on an extra visit to a Primary Care Provider.
