Now that open enrollment is here, you might be feeling overwhelmed by the sheer number of insurance plan options that you have for 2018. You want to choose a health insurance plan and physician that best serves your family and can help you and the ones you love in your time of need.
If you aren’t satisfied with your current health insurance plan, consider switching to a PPO plan and look to join our concierge medicine practice near Doylestown.
A PPO plan (preferred provider organization) offers you more freedoms than a standard HMO plan (Health Maintenance Organization). With a PPO plan, there is no need for referrals to see specialists and no need to select an in-network PCP (primary care physician), unlike the HMO plans. Having a PPO plan, you won’t feel trapped to a selected provider who you feel uncomfortable with just because you can’t get an appointment at an alternative care provider within your network.
A PPO plan also works best with concierge medical practices in Bucks County. Concierge medicine doctors offer many benefits that go above and beyond what primary care doctors that accept insurance offer their patients in their practices such as longer and unrushed appointments, coordination of care with specialists, and the ability to call, text, email, Skype and facetime at your convenience. Patients in a concierge medicine practice pay a yearly or monthly membership fee for these enhanced primary care services and utilize their health insurance for their hospital visits, labs, and outpatient testing.
Now is the time to start thinking about how you can improve the life and health of your family in the coming year. If you are looking for the best and more personalized approach to your healthcare with more conveniences, choose a PPO plan this enrollment year and the award-winning practice of Dr. Michael Luciano.
