Health Maintenance Organization (HMO)A HMO requires group members to obtain their health care services from doctors and hospitals affiliated with the HMO. Members are required to designate a primary care physician who treats and directs health care decisions and who coordinates referrals to specialties within the HMO network. HMOs offer access to a comprehensive package of covered health care services in return for a prepaid monthly amount (or “premium”). Most HMOs charge a small co-payment depending upon the type of service provided.
Preferred Provider Organization (PPO)A PPO saves members the most money on healthcare if they use providers within their network. If providers outside of the network are used, it is possible that those services may not be covered at all. Deductibles must be met on this plan before some services will be covered. PPOs require a co-pay for physician visits.
Health Savings Account (HSA)A HSA combines a high deductible/lower premium health insurance plan (PPO) with a savings account. Both employer and employee can contribute, tax-free to the savings account, which can help fund the deductible and other qualified medical expenses. Once the deductible is met, the insurance starts paying.

Simple routine visits to the dentist, which are usually covered 100% by insurers, help to detect serious underlying conditions. The National Association of Dental Plans and the Centers for Disease Control have performed studies that show that employees with Dental Insurance plans have better attitudes and are less likely to suffer from depression, a common condition in today’s fast-paced world. Dental Plans offer a variety of diagnostic, preventative care and corrective services. These include cleanings, exams, x-rays, fillings, root canals, orthodontia for children, and emergency care while traveling.
Vision PlansSimilar to dental policies, vision plans are inexpensive and save money on routine exams. They provide eyeglass frames and lenses, contacts, and even discounts on procedures like LASIK.
