What to Consider When Shopping for a Pennsylvania PPO Insurance Plan

We have compiled some of the more common concerns when shopping for a Pennsylvania PPO health insurance plan.

 

Are Your Doctors In-Network? – Before signing any health insurance contract, always make find out if your doctor(s) are part of the network even though a PA PPO plan will cover you for any out-of-network services.  Always remember that when you visit an out-of-network doctor, the cost may be substantially higher than if that doctor was in-network.

Always confirm that your Carrier and doctor are in-network with the insurance company before purchasing a health plan. Don’t assume anything from a receptionist—speak directly to the office manager and confirm if your doctor is in the same health network as your carrier.

Why the concern? If your out-of-network physician suggests additional services, then all of those services will probably be considered to be out-of-network even if the hospital or facility where they are performed is in your insurance company’s list of providers. With a PA PPO health plan, any of your out-of-network medical treatments will count towards your out-of-network deductible and coinsurance.

 

Lower Monthly Premium May Result in Higher Costs – Choosing a plan with a lower monthly premium usually means you will most likely pay higher costs when using your health care. If you are healthy and do not foresee any future health-related issues or have few prescriptions—and thus would spend little in out-of-pocket expenses even under the best-case scenarios, then you are better off choosing a less expensive non-PPO plan.

If you do find that your medical and monthly prescription usage is high, then it may be more costly in the long run to purchase a plan with a higher monthly premium. Be sure to make a fair assessment of your current health when shopping for a Pennsylvania PPO health insurance plan.

 

Health Insurance is a Contract – The insured agreed to live up to their end of the contract (usually a year). If you find that mid-year, you’re not happy with your plan, you most likely can’t go back to your insurance company and ask to change coverage. Do the research and choose the right plan that suits your needs before signing the contract. If you had insurance through a State Marketplace and it has lapsed, you’re then able to get a PA PPO health plan mid-year, as long as you are employed.

 

Types of Insurance Coverage – EPO, HMO, PPO, POS, HDHP, and HSA  describe different types of health coverage, that provide you with or without the need for referrals to see specialists and receive out-of-network and out-of-state coverage. Additionally, different plans also differ in requirements relative to the need for referrals. If you are receiving care and often see specialists out-of-network then you most likely would want a plan that offers that flexibility(such as PPO).

Those of us who travel often for work or those living in multiple states per year may want to consider a Pennsylvania PPO plan, it offers that flexibility that is needed. The last two types,  HDHP and HSA’s allow you to set up a tax-free savings account specifically for qualified medical costs  For a better understanding of these types of coverage please refer to the following article.

 

Are Essential Health Benefits Covered? All Pennsylvania PPO plans offer coverage for 10 essential health benefits, as required by the Affordable Care Act. This assures you of a certain level of coverage. Why would we need a minimum standard level? Well, medical care can be expensive, so without insurance in place, one may find oneself facing financial ruin. But a plan that includes the minimum essential health benefits (MEHBs) will provide a safeguard against this possibility.

This results in a larger pool of healthcare options for PPO plan members compared to non-PPO plans, where reimbursement rates are negotiated with a smaller, more tightly controlled network of providers.
