the POS requires you to choose a PCP and he can refer to other providers outside the network. HMO designates the providers you must use. PPO provides a list of doctors in the network to choose from

The major difference between HMO and PPO is the fact that HMO lets individuals choose doctors within a specific network, while PPO allows patients to choose their own health care provider.

Yes. Depends on company rules and if it's HMO or PPO coverage.

AnswerIf PPO shouldn't be a problem. If HMO, then it's Emergency only.

do you except ppo insurance

Even though the HMO is the health care plan that most people have because it is the one offered by their employer, many people either overlook or do not consider the HMO's big brother, the PPO. The PPO offers much more freedom to a policyholder than does an HMO, and aside from slightly higher premiums, the services of a PPO are much more straightforward and basically outstrip an HMO in all respects. Employees should consider a PPO as a gap policy, to cover anything that an HMO does not, and to cover their family if their employer policy does not. It is simply much easier to go to doctors that you wish to go to and see specialists at any time with a PPO.

Yes. Both PPO and HMO (and other types of healthcare systems) are still fully legal. What has changed is the minimum level of coverage required for a plan, not HOW that coverage is delivered.

PPO is always better you pay more for it but it pays off as soon as you use it

Anyone who can afford the payments can apply for HMO insurance. Many people can apply for HMO insurance through their employer. People can even get HMO insurance themselves and be self-insured.

Each HMO plan is different. Most are less flexible then PPO plans and have certain restrictions on them.

Yes and Yes. An HMO provides coverage for in-network providers only and a PPO plan will cover both in and out-of-network providers. That is the main difference between the plans. However PPO rates are typically higher than HMO rates. Also if using an out-of-network provider, reimbursement is almost always based on a deductible/coinsurance arrangement with the plan typically paying either 70% or 80% of the bill after the deductible has been paid by you.

POS health insurance is like a mix between a PPO plan and an HMO. A POS insurance plan has a network of providers which you must use, all centered around your chosen primary care physician.

Health insurance. HMO = Health Maintenance Organization.

The one that is better depends on your actual medical needs, and your desire for flexibility with the doctors that you see. In a HMO, you are restricted to a network of doctors, and typically there is no coverage if you go to an out of network doctor. In a PPO, you get more affordable coverage when you stay in network but you can go out of network if you have to. You still have coverage out of network in a PPO, but you pay more before the insurance pays. For these reasons, HMO's are less expensive than PPO's.

PPO stands for Primary Provider Organization, which means you can see phycians "in or out of network". Out of network will always be more money out of pocket to the insured. HMO stands for Health Maintanance Organization. HMO's do not have "out of network" benefits. HMO's are much more restricting because you are limited to the physicians and facilities that may be used.

You can find a doctor in Phoenix, Arizona through your health network, such as your HMO or PPO. These organizations can provide you doctors who are in your network and thus, covered by your insurance provider.

No. For one, in an HMO the providers are "capitated" paid part of the premium EVERY month, whether you use their services or not.

There are a number of health insurance providers in Nevada. One such provider is CoverntyOne, which has both PPO and HMO plans in South Nevada. The website eHealthinsurance provides the option of finding more providers of health insurance in Nevada.

"It's all about preference. Each type of insurance has its own benefits. It is better to stick with the one that meets your needs the most. Also, make sure to pick that one that you can afford."

That is tough to answer. It really depends upon if you are talking about and HMO, PPO, or HSA (HDHP) style of plan and where you are located. The most common deductible in the northwest, where I am, is 250-500 and the most common plan types are PPO and HMO. Movement over the past few years has been toward 500 and $1000 is starting to gain tracktion.

PPO - generally has a larger list of MD's and allows you to see MD's outside of the network, but at a lower payment level.
