How do I find an HMO?
The purpose of this webpage is to help you learn how to find a health maintenance organization (HMO) that serves your area. In Texas, HMOs are certified by the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI). In order to obtain its certification, each HMO applicant must submit an application that includes a description of the proposed geographic service area.
An alphabetical list of Texas-licensed HMOs is available on TDI's website at: http://www.tdi.texas.gov/hmo/profiles/alpha.html
Each HMO Profile includes:
- Name, address and phone number (Home Office)
- Attorney For Service (Name and Address)
- List of service areas (by counties)
- Type of HMO
- License Date
- NCQA Accreditation Information
- Number of Complaints
- Enrollment and Utilization
- Financial Information
- Per Member Per Month Information
Be sure to confirm that an HMO's approved geographic service area includes the county within which you live. A person who does not live in the HMO's approved geographic service area is not eligible for coverage under that HMO's health care plan(s).
