Abstract

The preferred provider organization (PPO), an alternative delivery system currently embraced by the employer sector, has been growing at a phenomenal rate for the past few years. It is necessary to examine the issues an employer should consider when deciding whether to offer a PPO option, and to look at organizational issues such as PPO structure, quality, utilization review mechanisms, and benefits design.
