Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) Networks

 

Argus' PPO network services are provided through our contracted relationships with established PPO networks. Additional savings below the individual state Medical Fee Guideline allowances can be realized by access to a PPO. The benefits of negotiated contracts for medical services with providers throughout the nation significantly increase overall savings on behalf of our clients.

 

 

EPP Networks

 

Our fee for service product is known as the Exclusive Preferred Provider (EPP) Network. Argus will work with our client to develop a client-specific EPP, resulting in a unique network to the market. This specialized subset network focuses on point-of-entry providers and specialists who are instrumental to the workers' compensation marketplace, e.g., orthopedic physicians, neurologists, physical therapists and occupational medicine providers. This specialized subset network reflects and takes advantage of naturally occurring care and referral patterns in the workers' compensation marketplace. The network providers not only engage in the prompt coordination and treatment of a broad range of occupational injuries, but they are also highly focused on return-to-work initiatives. Our goal for this specialized subset network offering is to help providers better understand employer job specifications and focus on return to work. The end result is a strong, productive, provider/employer relationship that guides injured employees back to work.
