Preferred Provider Organizations (PPOs)
A PPO is a group of doctors and/or hospitals that provides medical service only to a specific group or association. PPO physicians provide medical services to PPO members at discounted rates and may set up utilization control programs to help reduce the cost of medical care. Unlike an HMO, PPO members retain complete freedom of choice with regard to their health-care provider. However, treatment provided by a non-PPO physician is generally covered at a lesser level than treatment provided by a physician within the PPO network.
