In-network Only Products2

HMO/Freedom Network and HMO/Liberty Network3
Oxford has always offered traditional HMO plans for those who like to stay in-network and have their care coordinated by a primary care physician (PCP). Oxford's HMO plans allow Members to receive covered services from the in-network primary care provider of their choice. Oxford's Freedom and Liberty HMO plans offer:

•  In-network coverage only
•  Copayment for in-network physician office visits
•  PCP referral required for all specialist visits (except OB/GYN)
Note: HMO/Freedom Network is no longer available for large groups in New York as of January 2004

HMO Select/Freedom Network and HMO Select/Liberty Network3
These HMO Select plans are administered like our HMO plans described under HMO products, except Members do not need a referral to see a specialist. Additionally, Connecticut HMO Select Members do not need to select a primary care physician.

Note: HMO Select/Freedom Network is no longer available for large groups in New York, but will be available to large groups in New Jersey as of January 2004.

HMO LaurelSM
Oxford created the HMO Laurel for small employers in Connecticut that need more affordable options, without sacrificing quality. The HMO Laurel is a pre-packaged referral plan with in-network only coverage. All HMO Laurel Members have access to our Freedom Network of doctors and hospitals, which includes access to all Connecticut acute care hospitals. This plan also allows Members routine in-network preventive care, laboratory services and radiology services at no charge.

HMO Laurel SelectSM

Point-Of-Service Products (in- and out-of-network)

Oxford became known for being an innovator in the healthcare industry by creating the first combined in- and out-of-network plan in the tri-state area. These point-of-service plans are our most popular product, giving Members the choice to go in- or out-of-network for care.

Freedom Plan® and Liberty PlanSM 3 
We understand that choice and flexibility are a top priority for many. So we created the Freedom Plan and the Liberty Plan and became the first company in the tri-state area to offer in- and out-of-network benefits within the same plan.

Freedom Plan® ClassicSM and Liberty Plan ClassicSM 3
Many people feel it is a good idea to have the guidance of a primary care physician (PCP) throughout the healthcare process, and for those consumers we offer Freedom Plan Classic. Requiring a PCP referral prior to most specialist visits also allows for lower premium rates. Freedom Plan Classic provides a great value, and offers:

•  Separate office visit copayments for in-network PCPs and specialists
•  Access to in-network specialists with referral
•  Multiple prescription drug rider options
Freedom Plan® MetroSM and Liberty Plan MetroSM 3

This plan also allows Members routine in-network preventive care, laboratory services and radiology services at no charge.

Open Access Products / No PCP Referral Required

Understanding that some people prefer not to have to obtain a referral, we created open access/no referral plans to allow Members to visit in-network specialists directly.

Freedom Plan® AccessSM and Liberty Plan AccessSM 3
Freedom Plan Access and Liberty Plan Access do not require a referral for specialist visits. Instead specialist copayments are set at a higher rate than primary care physician (PCP) copayments since specialist visits cost more. The result is more affordable rates and plans that give Members greater flexibility to choose their own doctors and healthcare coverage options. Freedom Plan Access and Liberty Plan access offer:

•  Separate office visit copayments for in-network PCPs and specialists
•  Access to in-network specialists without referrals
•  In- and out-of-network coverage
•  Multiple prescription drug rider options

Freedom Plan® SelectSM 4 and Liberty Plan SelectSM 4
These open access plans are administered like our point-of-service plans, except:

•  Members may self-refer to participating specialists and receive in-network coverage.
•  Members do not need to select a PCP with most of our open access plans. (Plans offered to New York groups require the selection of a PCP)

Freedom Plan® DirectSM and Liberty Plan DirectSM 3
Freedom Plan Direct and Liberty Plan Direct use in-network deductibles to provide flexibility and lower prices. Freedom Plan Direct and Liberty Plan Direct offer:

•  Innovative, in-network deductible and coinsurance feature
•  Office visit copayment option
•  Routine in-network preventive care at no charge
•  Multiple prescription drug rider options

By offering higher copayments and in-network deductibles for hospital and facility based services, Oxford is able to offer this product at lower price points.

Consumer-Driven Health Plans

Oxford’s answer to consumer choice was to develop our point-of-enrollment plan which gives Members the control to choose the plan that best fits their healthcare needs.

Oxford Consumer Options SuiteSM
The Oxford Consumer Options Suite includes an electronic point-of-enrollment tool kit that offers clients the ability to choose from three Oxford plans with three price ranges: Freedom Plan Access, Freedom Plan Classic and Freedom Plan Direct.

Funded by the employer, the HRA covers the first half of the employee's deductible. Oxford MyPlan puts the Member in control of their healthcare dollars yet provides all the quality and support needed to help deliver a better healthcare experience.
