A HMO (Health Maintenance Organization) is a type of managed care plan that generally covers only the care you get from providers that are in the HMO’s network. People with Medicare can choose to get their Medicare benefits through an HMO. HMO members must choose a primary care physician (PCP) who coordinates their care and acts as a gatekeeper to their care. See also: Medicare Advantage Plan.
