What is a PPO Policy?
A preferred provider organization, or PPO, policy is an insurance plan that includes a network of preferred doctors and facilities. If you have this type of plan, you will be encouraged to use providers from this plan in order to maximize the coverage you will receive. Some other distinguishing characteristics of PPO plans include:
- Ability to choose your doctor. Under a PPO policy, you can decide which doctors and facilities you will utilize during depression treatment. However, selecting providers from outside of the preferred provider network may reduce your benefits.
- No need for a referral. With a PPO plan, you won't need a referral from your primary care physician in order to visit a specialist.
- Flexible cost-sharing requirements. You will be required to meet a deductible, make copays and/or pay coinsurance for the treatment you receive under a PPO plan. These terms vary by plan and can typically be customized to meet your needs.
Estimating Depression Treatment Benefits
If you are planning to receive treatment from PPO Depression Treatment Centers, it is a good idea to estimate the benefits you will receive from your insurer before you begin the program. To determine how much you will pay for treatment received at PPO Depression Treatment Centers, remember to consider your deductible and coinsurance amounts. Keep in mind that these requirements may differ based on whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network facility, so read your plan documents carefully. Although PPO plans don't typically require you to obtain a referral before you visit a specialist, you may need precertification for certain types of treatment.
