Health Choice PPO is a preferred provider organization (PPO) plan that gives you the freedom to choose from a broad network of healthcare providers. Health Choice PPO’s predictable copayments and coinsurance may make it easier for you to budget for your healthcare costs.
The benefits of the Health Choice High, High Alternative, Basic, and Basic Alternative Plans and High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) are based on cost-sharing features that include deductibles, copays and coinsurance. Refer to Plan Definitions at the back of this handbook for an explanation of these terms.
You can seek care from a network provider or a non-network provider; however, the amount you are responsible for paying is greatly increased when you use a non-network provider. With a statewide and multi-state network of more than 22,000 physicians, hospitals and other health care professionals and facilities, the Health Choice provider network is one of the largest .
Network providers are contracted with Health Choice and have agreed to accept Health Choice allowable fees for the services and equipment they provide. Network providers have agreed not to bill you for charges that are greater than allowable fees. You are still responsible for your plan’s copays, deductibles, coinsurance and charges for non-covered services.
Non-network providers are not contracted with Health Choice and have not agreed to accept allowable fees. This means you are responsible for paying the difference between the amount the provider bills and allowable fees. This process, known as balance billing, can be a large amount of money out of your own pocket. Even after you reach your plan’s out-of-pocket maximum, you are still responsible for all amounts above allowable fees when you use non-network providers.

A visit to a podiatrist is a benefit covered by most insurance plans. However, there can be restrictions due to changes in recent health care coverages.
To avoid any additional cost to the patient, Podiatry Group of Georgia will work with your insurance company to get your services covered. Sometimes this requires our office to send in a letter of medical necessity which will state the reasoning behind the recommended treatment and include the patient’s history and diagnosis.
As a courtesy to our patients, we will contact your insurance company prior to your visit to verify that services are covered and that no referrals are required. This allows us to provide you with the best care while making sure you are aware of your insurance benefits for any treatments or services recommended for your specific condition before they are performed.
