Health Net is changing its Out-of-State PPO Network for California Commercial Large & Small Group Business, effective November 1, 2023
Effective November 1, 2023 for large and small business, Health Net’s national PPO network for providers outside of California will change to the Cigna Healthcare PPO Network¹. There is no impact to Medi-Cal, Medicare, Individual & Family Commercial Business, or Oregon.
- Health Net members enrolled in PPO plans with out-of-state in-network coverage who access the Cigna Healthcare PPO Network are considered Health Net members who are simply accessing the Cigna Healthcare PPO Network at the in-network coverage level when outside of California.
- With over one million providers and 6,200 facilities², the national Cigna PPO network offers a wide selection of doctors and hospitals, competitive discounts, and flexibility to support value-driven plan designs.
This change provides access to a larger national PPO network for members who seek care out of state and is expected to increase opportunities for account growth because it expands Health Net's out-of-state PPO network.
The out-of-state PPO Network project is a great example of two Centene/Health Net Strategic Pillars - Make It Easy to Work with Us and Grow from Strength. Working together, its outcome will deliver better service to Health Net group members - and greater opportunity to grow Health Net's business.
