Cost Control

The HMO network, member benefit coverage and member newsletter help coordinate patient care and promote health and wellness through preventive benefits and health education programs. Members choose a primary care physician (PCP) to coordinate their care, including referrals to specialists, hospitals and other health-care providers for HMO and POS plans. The PCP serves as a coordination point to ensure that appropriate care is given in the proper setting. For network coverage, the member's PCP must prescribe, arrange and authorize referral to other in-network providers. Out-of-network coverage is only available in point-of-service (POS) programs. Open access POS plans provide in-network service without PCP referral plus out-of-network coverage.
