Preferred provider organizations

Preferred provider organizations are a type of health plan. PPOs have a network of doctors, hospitals, and other providers who have agreed to charge less. Members of the health plan have access to a list of providers in the network by name and location. If you choose from its network, you pay less than you would if you use a provider not in the network.
