Open Enrollment 2015

Health Net has shipped 90-day plan closure notices to Health Net PPO members (see related story about Anthem Blue Cross) in Covered California who are currently enrolled in PPO plans (Individual or Family PPO plans).  These notices shipped October 2nd, as Health Net moves its PPO portfolio off-exchange.  For the time-being, Health Net will not offer an individual or family Health Net PPO plan through Covered California.

What can you do to keep Health Net PPO plan coverage?  Fortunately, you have options… If you wish to keep the same doctor and stay on a similar plan directly (i.e. off-exchange) with Health Net, CLICK HERE to request free assistance.

If you wish to talk with someone to get information about the remaining PPO plans at Covered California, CLICK HERE.

Caution should be observed if you purchased a plan during the last open enrollment:  Effective after this Open Enrollment, Insurers are shifting doctor and hospital networks.  Do not take chances with your policy.  Before you renew, talk with one of our representatives for FREE.

Remember, Open Enrollment begins November 15th:  Changes are coming to certain PPO networks.  If you did not use a Certified Agent last year, now is a good time to find one…they are a free service of Covered California and are here to help.
