Types of Managed Care Plans

Managed care is actually a broad category of health insurance coverage--there are several forms of managed care. Generally, managed care plans have agreements with certain doctors, hospitals, and health care providers to give a range of services to plan members at a reduced cost. In general, you will have less paperwork and lower out-of-pocket costs if you select a managed care type plan.

Typically, the types of managed care health plans are either an HMO, a PPO or a POS plan.
