Some of our PPO doctors and hospitals have agreed to partner with us to control costs and provide access to affordable, high-quality coverage. This partnership is our EPO network. EPO providers have agreed to a different fee structure designed to cut costs and increase efficiencies. This benefits our members and reduces costs.
If a specialist isn’t in the EPO network, the member’s doctor can submit a waiver to get access to that specialist.
EPO providers are part of a local network available in six counties in southeast Michigan:
- St. Clair
At least 90 percent of our member population has access to EPO providers and hospitals within 30 minutes from home.
