PPO Network

A PPO network, or preferred provider organization, offers your employees flexibility when choosing health care options. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan has the largest network of doctors in the state and offering this network is a great way to attract and keep talent.

Why offer a PPO network

Blue Cross PPO plans have a 5-9% lower total cost of care over the competitor's average.
Our PPO members get access to 95% of doctors and 100% of hospitals in Michigan.
Nationally, Blue Cross PPO members have access to 95% of doctors and 96% of hospitals.

How this plan type works

A PPO plan offers flexibility when choosing health care options. It offers members the freedom to choose any health care provider without a referral. 

It's a great plan choice for those who have medical issues and need to see specialty doctors often. It's also great for those who live in rural areas since PPO plans are often accepted by more doctors, which equates to more provider choice.

If offering the widest network is a part of your priorities, you won't find a better option than a Blue Cross PPO plan. We offer the largest PPO network in Michigan, which is accepted by 100% of hospitals and 95% of doctors within the state.
