 HMO vs. PPO: How to choose what's right for you!

Choose an HMO if you stay mostly local.

With an HMO plan, you must receive care from doctors and hosptials within the plan's network, except for emergency or urgent care.

Choose a PPO if you travel

With a PPO plan, you can receive care within a network of doctors and hospitals or use out-of-network doctors and hospitals for covered services, usually for a higher cost.
