A Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) plan features a network of participating doctors, pharmacies and other health care providers.
With a Medicare HMO plan, you typically choose a primary care physician (PCP) who provides your initial treatments and coordinates your health care. If you need to see a specialist, you will typically need to get a referral from your PCP for a specialist within your HMO plan network.
Only care that is received within the plan network of participating providers will typically be covered by an HMO plan.
In 2022, 100% of Medicare Advantage beneficiaries in Georgia have access to at least one HMO plan.
A Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plan also typically includes a network of participating providers, but you may be able to receive health care services outside of the plan network still receive at least partial coverage.
If you receive medical services outside of your Medicare PPO plan network, however, you will typically pay higher out-of-pocket costs than you would if you visited an in-network provider.
PPO plans don’t typically require you to get a referral from your primary care physician in order to visit a specialist, but individual restrictions may vary.
In 2022, 100% of Georgia Medicare Advantage plan beneficiaries have access to at least one Local PPO plan.
Private Fee-For-Service (PFFS) plans allow members to receive care from any provider that accepts the plan’s coverage, agrees to the terms and conditions of the plan and accepts Medicare. PFFS plans are much less common than HMO and PPO plans.
With most Medicare PFFS plans, you aren’t required to designate a primary care doctor.
Medicare Advantage Special Needs Plans (SNPs) feature benefits that are designed for people with specific needs or who are dual eligible for Medicare and Medicaid.
Medicare SNPs aren’t available in all areas. Depending on where you live and what type of special needs you may have, a licensed insurance agent can help you find a Medicare SNP that may fit your needs, if one is available.
