As a member of our PPO, Plus PPO, Primary PPO, or Premier PPO plan, you can choose to receive care from out-of-network providers. These plans will cover services from either in-network or out-of-network providers, as long as the services are covered benefits and medically necessary. For more information about cost-sharing for out-of-network providers, please refer to the Medical Benefits chart in Chapter 4 of your plan’s EOC.
As a member of our HMO, Tribute HMO, Select HMO, or D-SNP plans, you must use in-network providers to get your medical care and services. Care you receive from an out-of-network provider will not be covered. The only exceptions are emergencies, urgently needed services in which the network is not available (generally, when you are out of the area), out-of-area dialysis, and in cases in which Johns Hopkins Advantage MD (HMO) authorizes use of out of network providers. For more information about the network, please refer to Chapter 3 of your plan’s EOC.
