Members may benefit from discounted provider prices through access to our networks of Preferred Providers. We have partnered with the largest proprietary PPO networks in the country, with nearly 695,000 physicians, 4,600 hospitals and more than 95,000 ancillary care facilities throughout the United States.
Their accreditations are tangible evidence of the quality and consistency of the services they offer to our customers, providers and the 16 million members who use the PPO Network. As external review becomes a more critical element in the PPO evaluation process, you can be confident that when you choose one of our networks, you are choosing a recognized leader that meets the highest national standards.
