HMO - Health Maintenance Organizations

Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs)

An HMO offers health benefits, including preventive care, with no deductibles or maximums, and minimal co-payments. You will choose a primary care physician (PCP) within a network of contracting doctors. Our area has two networks available. The PCP coordinates your care, including referrals to specialists. If you go outside of the HMO without a referral (except for emergency services), you will be responsible for the total cost of services. Please see EOC for specific plan details.

Note: Employees enrolled in UnitedHealthcare and using a Santa Barbara County zip code for eligibility will not have access to Coastal Communities Physician's network; all other plans have access to both networks depending upon their Primary Care Physician.
