POS Plans are Similar to PPO Plans

Like a PPO plan, your POS health insurance plan will have two levels of coverage: in-network and out-of-network. You’ll pay less for medical care when you choose a doctor or hospital within your plan’s network. But if you decide to get care outside the plan network, you’ll still have coverage.

That gives you the flexibility to get care wherever you want — and still be covered. It’s especially useful if you already have a doctor who isn’t part of your new plan’s network. You can continue to see that doctor and still have some coverage.

POS Plans are Similar to HMO Plans

A POS health insurance plan will offer more flexible coverage than an HMO, but they have one key similarity. Like an HMO, you’ll have to choose a Primary Care Physician (PCP).

Your PCP will be the first doctor you go to for medical care. If you need to see a specialist, you can get a referral from your PCP.

The referral is like a “stamp-of-approval” from your Primary Care Physician — and it just about guarantees that you’ll be covered for the care you receive from the specialist. You’ll also have the most coverage when you get a referral.
