What is a PPO?

PPO stands for Preferred Provider Organization, a type of health or dental insurance plan.

Insurance companies create networks by signing medical professionals to contracts to provide services for a discounted set rate.

These contracted practitioners are the "Preferred Providers" who will serve the policyholders for these preferred  rates.

PPO plans allow for use of providers outside the network, but at higher costs.
