Plan Design Guidelines

The Signature Care PPO network recognizes that area employers have varying needs to gain control of their healthcare costs. For that reason we have designed a portfolio of products to meet those needs. As you consider which product appears to be an appropriate fit, please consider the suggested guidelines. If your plan design varies slightly from these guidelines, contact us to determine for which product your group qualifies.

Signature Care EPO (Exclusive Provider Organization)

Our most aggressive product is built using a three-tiered plan design. The top tier is for the EPO hospitals. Signature Care EPO employers will receive unsurpassed discounts at those facilities. However, all members still have access to the entire Signature Care network expanding to include more than 21,000 Healthcare providers and facilities in Indiana and northwest Ohio. In addition to each of the high quality, 4-star rated Parkview Hospitals, Signature Care is pleased to have the Cleveland Clinic, Indiana University Health and University of Michigan as in-network Centers of Excellence Hospitals.  

The second tier is for all other Signature Care in-network services.

The third tier is for out of network services. The second and third tiers are similar to a typical plan design.

To qualify for EPO, we ask that the differentials are as follows: 



Tier 1

(EPO Hospitals)        

Tier 2

(Other in-network)

 Tier 3

(Out of network)


Starting Coinsurance         

10% more than Tier 1

 $3,000 more than Tier 1
