PPO vs EPO
One of the selected providers, Anthem has offered ” EPO” plans in its new 2014 plans. It gave explanation for the difference between the EPO and PPO. EPO plans actually add the element of tiered hospitals and have no out of network benefits. But PPO members still have the ability to go out of network with reduced benefits.
這次新計畫中,許多人都不明白藍十字推出的EPO到底為何? 藍十字已有說明如下, EPO和PPO有著一樣的Network, 但將医院分不同的收費等級,而且EPO沒有Network以外的福利. 而PPO必要時仍可利用out of Network, 只是福利較低, 費用較高 !
