They may not bill you. – If your PFFS plan has a network, you can still receive services from non-network providers, but you may pay more to see a doctor or other healthcare professional who isn’t in our network. – Private-Fee-for-Service plans do not pay after Medicare pays its share. – You’re required to pay the appropriate deductibles, copayments, and coinsurance
Humana.com PFFS plan review Private-Fee-for-Service (PFFS) We have network providers – providers who have signed contracts with our plan – for all services covered under Original Medicare in our fully networked plans. For partial network plans, contracted providers are limited to certain Durable Medical Equipment providers, home health providers, and some freestanding labs. These providers have agreed to see members of our plan.
