Care Improvement Plus Medicare Advantage plans offer members access to a network of contracted physicians and hospitals, but also allow them the flexibility to seek covered services from outside of the contracted network. Members do not need a referral for specialty care.
- Care Improvement Plus Medicare Advantage (PPO)
- Care Improvement Plus Medicare Advantage (Regional PPO)
Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plans are available as either local PPO (certain counties within a state) or regional PPO (RPPO) offerings. RPPOs serve a larger geographic area - either a single state or a multi-state area. RPPOs offer the same premiums, benefits and cost-sharing requirements to all members in the region.
Care Improvement Plus Medicare Advantage plans cover benefits in addition to those covered under Original Medicare. Residents in some areas have several plans from which to choose. The plans include an integrated Medicare Part D prescription drug benefit.
