Specialty PPO and Custom Network
PHA has developed chiropractic and behavioral health and centers of excellence networks to augment its group health and worker’s compensation networks. PHA also offers “custom networks” which are designed for an individual client. These request-specific networks allow PHA to customize any one of our networks. Nearly all of the PHA clients utilize a “client-specific” version of our larger networks. This allows the client to carefully match the needs of its enrollees with the most efficient providers for even greater savings. Examples of this customization include Exclusive Provider Organizations (EPO’s) multiple tiered benefit structures and proficiency-based networks.
