Wisconsin individual medical insurance policies are available as PPO (Preferred Provider Organization) plans. This type of policy offers the option of choosing any physician without requiring a referral from a primary physician. If you have symptoms that indicate the need to see a neurologist, you do not have to go to your general healthcare provider first to get a referral. The only requirement is the physician must be on the provider list.

If you have been covered by a group policy, you are familiar with the process of acquiring medical treatment under certain types of policies. It is easier to stay with the same kind of policy if possible. Most insurance companies offering group plans will also be able to offer an individual policy with near identical coverage. This works great for those who are caught in the crosshairs of job cutbacks or reduction of benefits.
