PPO Pros:

  • There is no need to choose a primary care physician with a PPO program, so that gives employees a little bit more flexibility when choosing healthcare.
  • Employees also have the option of going out of network for care as well, which is not an option in some other types of plans.
  • One of the biggest benefits is that there is very little paperwork for both the employee and the employer.

PPO Cons:

  • For employees, a PPO is one of the higher cost options. That does not necessarily mean the employer will pay more, but it could have that implication.
  • Employees may need pre-authorization for certain types of care, and this might be something that the employee would have to handle themselves.
  • If the employee needs to move out-of-network, then costs can add up quickly.
