Exclusive Provider Organization (EPO) Overview

At CDPHP, we take care to make sure the providers you interact with are providing the best care they can. Imagine in-network care with no paperwork, no referrals, and no surprises.

The EPO plan includes:

  • Affordable copayments or coinsurance per visit after meeting your deductible (if any)

  • No claim forms or referrals

  • No charge for certain preventive care, including routine annual exams and screenings

  • Freedom to select your own providers of care within our national network

  • Worldwide coverage for emergency care

How it Works

With an EPO you are not required to select a primary care physician (PCP), although we encourage you to establish a relationship with a network PCP who will coordinate your care and refer you to network specialists as needed. You are responsible for paying a coinsurance or copayment when going for care. Please refer to the benefit materials provided to you at the time of enrollment for specifics on your out-of-pocket costs. These vary according to the plan purchased by your employer group.

Members of the EPO only have coverage for care provided within the CDPHP network. This includes access to a national network of 825,000+ providers of care.
