Heath Insurance Plan Types

Basically there are two kinds of standardized health insurance: Fee-for-Service, and Managed Care. You could probably say, “they’re the same, but different,” covering various medical, surgical, and hospital expenses. Prescriptions are generally covered to a degree, and occasionally dental coverage is included to an extent. You may be familiar with the following:

  • HMO – Health Maintenence Organization
  • PPO – Preferred Provider Organization
  • EPO – Exclusive Provider Organization
  • POS – Point-of-Service Plan

types of standardized health insurance

Managed care

These are most commonly called HMOs, PPOs, EPOs, and POS. These can provide comprehensive arrays of health services, and offer a financial incentive for the use of “plan providers.


This is a system where a doctor or health care provider is paid a “fee” for each service. They are essentially rewarded for volume and quantity of service provided, no matter the outcome.

plan linked to HSA

Like managed care, this will generally be an HMO, PPO, EPO, or POS. There are higher out-of-pocket costs, but a tax-free health savings account is linked to it. To have an HSA, you must enroll in this plan.

Catastrophic plan

Catastrophic Plan: This is for the under-30s, and with it, you might have a lower premium, three primary care visits before your deductible is applied, and free preventive care.

Are the plans the same?


No, each plan will pay a fixed set of costs for the “average” enrolled person. Because everyone is not average, the details will vary widely across plans. Deductibles will also vary, but you can expect that the lowest-cost plan will carry the highest deductible.
