Preferred Provider organization (PPO)

We contract with these preferred provider organization (PPO) plans. The following list includes most though not all of the PPO plans we can accept. Check directly with your benefit office or the insurer to determine whether your plan allows access to Sansum Clinic, since many plans may have different networks that Sansum Clinic may not be included in per product plan/design.

IMPORTANT: Prior to using our services, always verify with your employer benefits manager or PPO Plan that Sansum Clinic is considered an in-network provider; otherwise, your out-of-pocket costs may be higher or not covered at all if your health plans product/plan design excludes Sansum Clinic as a participating provider.
