What is a Multistate Plan?
When a carrier offers the same plan in more than one state it is a Multi-State plan. It does not necessarily mean that consumers selecting the plan will have health plan coverage in multiple states. It just means insurance companies now can offer the same plan in more than one state.
What is a PPO plan
PPO stands for Preferred Provider Organization. PPO health plans often have a national network of doctors and will allow you to see health care professionals outside of your home state.
Remember: Multistate plans do not necessarily mean they cover you in multiple states.
