Nevada Insurance Enrollment Answers HMO Or PPO – Which One Is Best For Me?

LAS VEGAS - eTradeWire -- You've probably heard the terms HMO and PPO. We created a simple side-by-side chart that shows the basic features of HMOs and PPOs. Remember, there is no right or wrong choice when it comes to selecting your health care plan. Having a clear understanding of these plans and how they work will help you in choosing the plan that's best for you, your family, and your budget.

What is a PPO?
PPO stands for Preferred Provider Organization. A PPO health insurance plan allows for more flexibility and more choices when it comes to your healthcare. It offers a network of healthcare providers to choose from and you have the freedom to receive care from within that network or choose an out-of-network doctor, specialist, or hospital, without a referral. Keep in mind, however, that your out-of-pocket medical costs are lower when you choose an in-network provider but overall, out of pocket costs are higher with PPO Plans.

PPO plans do not require you to choose a Primary Care Physician (PCP) and do not require referrals.  Let's say you have a doctor or specialist that you like and have been seeing for years. With a PPO plan you could continue your visits whether they are in-network or out-of-network and without the need for a referral. If your PPO plan has a nationwide network of doctors, you can go anywhere in the USA. Check your plan details for more info.

It is important to remember, that while you can receive care from any doctor, specialist, or hospital you choose, you will save more money by choosing an in-network provider.
