PPO Plan 

You have one PPO medical option under the Northrop Grumman Health Plan: the Anthem Blue Cross Preferred PPO.

The PPO option:

  • Enables you to go to any doctor or hospital, but you will pay less when you go to a doctor in the PPO network
  • Provides prescription drug coverage through Express Scripts
  • Provides health/substance abuse treatment coverage through ValueOptions
  • Provides a preventive care benefit, which means:
    • There is no dollar limit for in-network preventive care services, such as routine physicals and mammograms
      • Services must be coded as "routine" care by your physician to be covered (deductibles and coinsurance will not apply)
      • Services not coded as "routine" will not be eligible for preventive care reimbursement (will be paid as coded and covered; deductibles and coinsurance will apply
    • Office visit copayments still apply
