It might be a lot simpler if there were only one type of health insurance plan, but it wouldn't necessarily be better for you. Having options means it's easier to find a plan that fits your needs—both for your health and your budget. And don't worry—we'll help you figure out the differences between plans. You'll see it's really not so complicated once you take a closer look. Here's a brief description of the three main types of managed care plans:
HMO: Health Maintenance Organization
PPO: Preferred Provider Organization
