Preferred Provider Organization (PPO)

Business / Taxes / Preferred Provider Organization (PPO): A preferred provider organization (PP0) is a network of doctors and other healthcare providers that offers discounted care to members of a sponsoring organization, usually an employer or union. You may also arrange private insurance coverage though a PPO. If you’re insured through a PPO, you make a copayment for each visit to a healthcare provider, though certain diagnostic tests may not require copayment. You typically have the option to go to a doctor or other provider outside the network, but you pay a larger percentage of the cost, called coinsurance, than if you used a network doctor.
