PPO Plans have a network of providers and hospitals that beneficiaries are encouraged to use. When they visit these providers, their insurance will be accepted and coverage will be granted. If the beneficiary goes outside of the network for health services, they may be responsible to pay a larger amount, if not all, of the medical bill.
Many PPO Plans include prescription drug coverage. Those enrolled in Part C are not able to enroll in Part D.
Primary care doctor
Primary care doctors are not required by PPO Plans. This is partly because PPO Plans do not require referrals to see specialists within the set network. This can save time and money, making it an excellent way to get access to needed health services.
