HMO, PPO, POS
Health Maintenance Organizations, HMOs. Some plans limit costs by restricting patient access to specialists. To see a specialist in such a plan the patient must first visit his or her Primary Care Physician. If the Primary Care provider deems necessary, a "referral" is made to the specialist physician. If you have an HMO plan you can not be seen in our office without a valid referral and/or referral number, even if you are an established patient, unless you agree to pay for your services yourself at the time services are rendered.

Preferred Provider Organizations, PPOs.
With this type of plan you should not need a referral to see a specialist, but you still must select one from a list provided by your insurance company. Such plans allow greater freedom for the patient to choose a doctor and for the specialist to take tests and provide necessary treatment. Each time you are seen in the office you will be asked to make a small payment or co-pay. In addition, some plans have a deductible that must be satisfied before the insurance company will pay for services provided. Should you have a deductible that must be satisfied, you are responsible for making this payment at the time services are rendered. Your insurance company will be notified that you have made payment towards your deductible. If your plan requires additional patient responsibility for certain procedures, you may receive a balance bill for these charges.

Point of Service Plans, POS. If your insurance plan allows you to go to a specialist either with or without a referral, you may have a POS (Point of Service) plan. This is a hybrid between an HMO and PPO plan. Technically it has the same restrictions with regard to tests and professional services as an HMO. If you choose to see a participating specialist without a referral you may incur higher out of pocket expenses.
