What is a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO)

A Health Maintenance Organization, or HMO, is a type of health insurance plan; it is a comprehensive one-stop-shop for all of your healthcare needs. They often provide integrated care and focus on prevention and wellness. An HMO has the most structure and regulation of any other plan, so you’ll have to stay within your HMO network for all of your services. You will have one Primary Care Physician (PCP) for all of your appointments.
