What’s the difference between an HMO & a PPO?

An HMO, otherwise known as an Health Maintenance Organization, emphasizes the importance of preventative care by assigning subscribers to a Primary Care Physician (PCP). A PCP provides and authorizes care. If you needed to see a specialist, for example, your PCP would authorize a visit by referral. This preventative care approach is designed to reduce health care costs.

A PPO, Preferred Provider Organization, offers a broad choice of in-network providers. The network consists of many hospitals and private physicians you may choose from to access health care. As opposed to an HMO, a PPO network is designed to allow you to have more control of over your health care without a required authorization.
