What is an HMO plan?

Answer to What is Medicare question
The most popular type of Medicare Advantage plan is the one sponsored by a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO).

Almost two-thirds of those with Medicare Advantage have this type of plan. 

An HMO generally requires a member to select a primary physician who will coordinate care. In most HMO plans, that physician must make a referral in order for a member to see a specialist. Other than for true emergency situations, an HMO may not pay for care outside the network.
