There are essentially three types of Texas health insurance policies to choose from: consumer-directed, fee for service, and managed care. These directives help to cover hospital, surgical, and medical expenses. They may even cover other expenses not directly related, such as dental expenses, mental health services, and prescription drugs, depending on the coverage you choose to get from a provider.
A consumer-directed health plan (a.k.a. “consumer-driven” or “consumer choice”) is a newer type of healthcare option which is designed to give more control to the individual. You set up a health fund that can be used to cover medical expenses as a key part of this plan.
As a more traditional healthcare plan, the fee for service option means that you pay a fee to your provider for every healthcare service you receive. The benefit of this type of health insurance plan is that it allows for a lot of flexibility when choosing a physician or healthcare provider, without having to pay large premiums.
Members of managed care health plans generally enjoy more benefits like lower out-of-pocket costs. However, you can only receive treatment from physicians that participate in the managed care network. Typical managed care plans include health maintenance organizations (HMOs), preferred provider organizations (PPO), and point-of service (POS) plans. It is a much more organized option.
