Options PPO Plan

You have the freedom to use any doctor or hospital you want.

But you can save money when you choose doctors (including specialists), hospitals, labs and pharmacies in the Options PPO network. Health care providers who are in our network have agreed to charge lower prices.

You also have coverage if you choose to receive care outside the network. However, you will likely pay more for the service.

You do not need to choose a primary care provider.

But a primary care provider (PCP) can be helpful in managing your care.

You do not need a referral to see a specialist.

See any doctor, including specialists, without referrals.

HOW THE PLAN WORKS

1 You will likely pay a co-payment for doctor visits and prescriptions.2 A co-payment is a fixed amount of money you have to pay each time you see a doctor or fill a prescription.

2 You will likely have a deductible.2 The deductible is the amount you owe for covered services before your plan starts to pay.

3 If you paid the deductible, your plan will likely have co-insurance.2 Co-insurance is when the plan shares the cost of covered services with you. The plan will pay a percentage of each service, and you will pay the rest. For example, if your plan pays 80% of the cost, you will pay 20%.

4 You are protected with an out-of-pocket limit.3 This is the most you will pay during a plan year for covered services. If you reach the limit, the plan will pay 100% of covered services for the rest of the plan year.

You may be required to have approval for certain services before they can be covered by your plan. See your health plan documents for coverage details.
