PPO

What does PPO stand for?

Preferred provider organization

A health acronym that stands for the health insurance plan that contrasts with HMO.

A PPO gives you more flexibility than the HMO plan, as you don't need a PCP. You can visit any health care specialist without a referral but you will have higher out-of-pocket costs if you go outside of your network.

Example

"I like having a PPO plan cuz I don't have to rely on only one dr."
