EmblemHealth HMO Large Group Members:
Offering a Preferred Provider Option

Date Issued: 8/15/2017

We are proud to introduce the concept of including “preferred providers” as part of our large group HMO plans. It’s a unique, cost-savings approach to traditional HMOs.

Our new HIP Preferred Plus plan offers members the option to choose a preferred provider as their primary care physician (PCP) from our Prime Network.

Here’s how it works:

  • When members choose a preferred provider from our Prime Network as their PCP they will:
    • Pay lower copays for office visits.
    • Pay lower copays for specialist visits when referred by their preferred PCP.
    • Save money, because they have no costs for preventive services, and maternity and newborn care.
    Members can find a Preferred Provider in the Prime Network by visiting emblemhealth.com/findadoctor and looking for this symbol  Find a Doctor logo
  • If a member chooses a non-preferred provider (called a participating provider) as their PCP they will:
    • Pay higher copays for office visits.
    • Pay higher copays for specialist visits.
