Health Maintenance Organizations (HMO)
An HMO gives you a range of benefits for a prepaid monthly fee. The plan focuses on wellness, prevention, and treatment within a network of providers. Out-of-network providers are usually not covered, unless in an emergency.

Short-Term Health Plans
Short-term health plans are designed to help keep you covered while you are in between plans from your employer, Healthcare.gov, or a private insurer like Scott & White Health Plan. A short-term plan typically provides basic coverage for health emergencies and catastrophic events. Short-term plans can be purchased for periods ranging from 1-11 months.

POS — often referred to as the “self-referral option” — is sometimes offered in conjunction with HMOs. Members can see either in- or out-of-network providers at the point where they choose to receive medical services. This option gives members freedom of choice to self-refer to non-contact providers.
