Common Coverage Types
Preferred provider organizations are the most common health plan and tend to cost more than an HMO. PPO plans offer a selection of doctors or hospitals on the insurance company’s list of preferred providers. A deductible must be paid before certain benefits are available.
Health maintenance organizations offer lower out-of-pocket expenses but have less flexibility in the choice of physicians or hospitals. Under an HMO plan, you typically select a primary care physician who can refer you to a HMO specialist if needed. HMOs require copayment for certain services.
Health Savings Accounts are savings accounts similar to a 401k that allow you to save money pre-tax to use for future qualified medical expense. The invested money grows tax free and can be a great financial tool during your retirement.
