HMO Health Insurance
Looking for Group Health Insurance?

HMO Health Insurance is a Health Maintenance Organization. It is a form of health insurance in which members prepay a premium for the HMO's health services. The HMO is the legal entity that assumes responsibility for health care services and for the cost of the insured's care. This type of health care plan provides a range of health care services to its insured members. An HMO contracts with health care providers, physicians, hospitals, and other health professionals. This is why HMO members are required to use participating providers in the HMO network, which are coordinated by a primary care physician selected by the insured from a list of providers.
