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 HealthcareSM PPO Network1There 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 our 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 our group members – and greater opportunity to grow business.

You can expect more information from Health Net in the coming weeks, including timing of planned member communications.
