Everything you need to know about EPO health insurance plans.
An exclusive provider organization, or EPO, is a health insurance plan that is often described as a hybrid between HMOs and PPOs.
Like an HMO, EPO plans do not cover out-of-network health care providers. You will not be reimbursed for health care services you get at an out-of-network provider.
Like a PPO, EPO plans do not require that you get a referral from your primary care physician in order to see a specialist. You can make appointments directly with a specialist without having to see your primary care physician first.
EPOs combine the flexibility of PPOs with some of the stricter rules of HMOs at a price point that typically lands between the two types of plans. If you want more freedom to make appointments directly with specialists, but don't mind staying within your network of providers, EPOs are a good choice for you.

Yes, we have to include some legalese down here. Read it larger on our legal page. Policygenius Inc. (“Policygenius”) is a licensed independent insurance broker. Policygenius does not underwrite any insurance policy described on this website. The information provided on this site has been developed by Policygenius for general informational and educational purposes. We do our best efforts to ensure that this information is up-to-date and accurate. Any insurance policy premium quotes or ranges displayed are non-binding. The final insurance policy premium for any policy is determined by the underwriting insurance company following application. Savings are estimated by comparing the highest and lowest price for a shopper in a given health class. For example: for a 30-year old non-smoker male in South Carolina with excellent health and a preferred plus health class, comparing quotes for a $500,000, 20-year term life policy, the price difference between the lowest and highest quotes is 60%. For that same shopper in New York, the price difference is 40%. Rates are subject to change and are valid as of 2/17/17.
