Why a PPO? Why Not!

Click here to see a list of PPO providers in your area.

The Christian Brothers Employee Benefit Trust PPO plans have very few restrictions. This means you don’t have to select a primary care physician or need a referral when seeking treatment from a specialist. The Plan allows you the ability to see almost any doctor you choose, and covers you if you want to see an out-of-network provider. If you choose to see an out-of-network provider, be aware that your benefits will be reduced. When you choose a PPO provider, costs to you are reduced and you will receive a higher benefit level. 

Using a PPO provider means:
  • No primary care doctor required
  • Freedom to see specialists and other providers without needing referrals or pre-approvals
  • Ability to see providers who are not in the network
  • Best discounts possible to save more money
  • Higher benefit level
