PPO Plan Basics
PPO insurance policies have several features that distinguish them from other types of plans. Some of these characteristics include:
- A network of preferred providers - A PPO plan includes a network of doctors and hospitals that have a standing agreement with the insurance company. Using providers from this network will maximize the amount of coverage you receive, while using out-of-network providers will reduce your coverage. For example, treatment received at a PPO Drug Rehab Treatment Center included in your plan will be covered at a higher level than treatment received at an out-of-network facility.
- No need for a referral - With a PPO plan, you can schedule an appointment with a specialist without obtaining a referral from your primary care provider. However, keep in mind that you may still need precertification from the insurance company for certain types of treatment.
- Choose your doctor - If you have this type of insurance, you can typically choose your own doctors and facilities with no input from your primary doctor or the insurance company.
Will I Pay for Treatment?
If you have coverage under a PPO plan, you may still pay a portion of your treatment expenses. In most cases, you will need to meet a deductible before your benefits will begin. You may also need to pay coinsurance after you have met your deductible. Coinsurance is typically calculated as a percentage of each bill. Most PPO plans will also include an out-of-pocket maximum, which is the maximum amount you should expect to pay for your medical treatment during the year. Once you reach this limit, any subsequent expenses incurred at a PPO Drug Rehab Treatment Center will be covered by your plan.
Estimating your exact insurance benefits can be challenging. If you need answers to specific questions or would like to find a PPO Drug Rehab Treatment Center near you, contact your insurance provider.
