You may select any participating provider in the network to manage your care, or you may choose a non-participating provider. Generally, your costs are lower if you use a participating provider. PPP also offers members access to over 500,000 Blue Cross and Blue Shield providers nationwide through the BlueCard℠ program and emergency care anywhere in the world through HMSA's Away From Home Care Program.
