What is a POS Plan?
Members of a POS plan do not make a choice about which system to use until the point at which the service is being used.
In terms of using such a plan, a POS plan has levels of progressively higher patient financial participation as the patient moves away from the more managed features of the plan. For example, if the patient stays in a network of providers and seeks a referral to use a specialist, they may have a copayment only. However, if they use a network provider, but do not seek a referral, they will pay more, and so on.
