Preferred Provider Organization

PPO. A health care organization composed of physicians, hospitals, or other providers which provides health care services at a reduced fee. A 

PPO

 is similar to an 

HMO

, but care is 

Paid

 for as it is received instead of in 

Advance

 in the form of a scheduled fee. PPOs may also 

Offer

 more flexibility by allowing for visits to out-of-network professionals at a greater 

Expense

 to the 

Policy

 holder. Visits within the network require only the payment of a small fee. There is often a 

Deductible

 for out-of-network expenses and a higher co-payment. A 

Policy

 holder will have a primary physician within the network who will handle referrals to specialists that will be covered by the PPO. After any visit, the 

Policy

 holder must submit a 

Claim

, and will be reimbursed for the visit minus his/her co-payment.
