Evaluating Your Insurance Plan
There are several types of insurance plans; each has its own set of pros and cons and each plan offers patients a different way to approach their compulsive gambling treatment.
- HMO stands for Health Maintenance Organization. HMO insurance plans are generally the most affordable options in regards to up front out-of-pocket costs. You may less per month with your HMO plan and have a lower yearly deductible, but in exchange there are some restrictions. Everything under the umbrella of an HMO passes through your primary care physician (PCP), who must give you a referral before you can see any kind of specialist, including an addiction specialist. This can make it difficult to see the doctor you prefer, but for some people the lower cost is worth it.
- PPO stands for Preferred Provider Organization. PPOs may be more costly on paper, but they come with the added benefits of flexibility and control. If you're seeking PPO compulsive gambling treatment, you can call the facilities and addiction specialists of your choice without having to make an appointment and get the approval of a PCP first.
