100 or 200 Amp meter head?

I am going to place a new service drop and meter head next to my old one and then the POCO will switch it out. My question is how is a 200 amp meter head different than a 100 amp head? I have an existing 100 amp service and it's fine but in the future someone (maybe me) may want more power.
Can I use a 200 amp meter head to supply the existing 100 amp main panel?
They look the same to me!
Thanks for the advice.

What is a "meter head"?
I agree

What you should do is install 200 amp servicehead ,service wire and meterpan. Than feed your existing panel. This way in the future all you have to do is change the panel and change the water pipe bonding wire.
