Health Maintenance Organization Plans (HMO)

The Public Employees’ Benefits Program (PEBP) offers HMO plans to state employees and retirees and eligible non-state employees and retirees. An HMO is a type of health plan in which a member of the plan usually pays copayments for care received. As long as the member complies with the provisions of the plan (generally one must first visit a predesignated doctor or clinic in order to obtain care at the discretion of the HMO), there are no other charges for the health care services, other than copayments.

HMO’s are limited to a service area and participants must use designated providers to receive benefits, with the exception of urgent or emergency services obtained outside of the HMO’s service area.
