What to Know When Shopping for a Florida PPO Insurance Plan

Below are the most common questions and concerns we hear of when shopping for a Florida PPO health insurance plan.

Are Your Doctors In-Network – Before choosing a health insurance plan you should make sure that your general doctor(s) are currently accepting new patients. even though an FL PPO plan will cover out-of-network services.  Receiving care at an out-of-network doctor may cost substantially more than if that doctor is in-network.

Don’t just ask the receptionist of the doctor’s office if they accept a certain health insurance plan before enrolling. You should confirm directly with the insurance carrier or your broker that your doctors are in-network. Why the big concern? Just, keep in mind that if an out-of-network provider suggests a procedure, then all of the services that are provided by that doctor will be viewed as out of network, even if the facilities and providers are in-network.  With a Florida PPO health insurance plan, all of your out-of-network medical care will count towards your out-of-network deductible

Lower Monthly Premium May Result in Higher Costs– Health insurance has a simple formula: the lower your monthly premium, then you are more likely going to pay higher costs when you use the plan. If you’re in good health and do not foresee any health-related care needed and don’t use medicine on a very regular basis, then maybe you’re better off selecting a lower costing health insurance. Though, if you find that your level of medical care and prescription usages are high, then you may save money in the long run by purchasing a plan with a higher monthly cost. Always consider your current health condition when shopping for a Florida PPO health insurance plan.

Health Insurance is a Contract – Like every contract, both parties agree to live up to the contract (in most cases for one year). If you find that you are not happy with your health plan, you can’t go back to your insurance company in the middle of the year and ask them to switch plans.  As such, be sure to choose a  plan that is a good match before signing a contract.  If you had a State Marketplace plan or federal marketplace plan that has lapsed, you can get an FL PPO health plan mid-year as long as you are employed. 

Types of Insurance Coverage – EPO, PPO, POS, HMO, HDHP, and HSA. The first 4 describe different health insurance coverages that provide you with or without the ability to seek specialty care and receive out-of-network and out-of-state care. Also, different coverages have different requirements relative to the need for referrals. If you’re seeing specialists more often than  an out-of-network plan offers you the flexibility needed

Do you travel often for work or reside in several states per year, then perhaps a Florida PPO that offers flexibility is needed. The last two types of plans,  HDHP and HSA’s allow you to create tax-free savings account specifically designed for qualified medical costs

Are Essential Health Benefits Covered? – All Florida PPO plans cover the 10 essential health benefits. This provides you with a minimum level of coverage that is guaranteed, which is the standard set by the Affordable Care Act. Why would the public need a minimum standard level? Well, the cost of medical care treatment is unaffordable without insurance plan in place and can lead to financial ruin. Having a plan that includes the bare minimum essential health benefits provides a safeguard.
