Two big announcements for 2018:

We’d like to introduce you to the newest member of the Health Net plan family: EnhancedCare PPO. Offering the ultimate in flexibility, EnhancedCare PPO provides you the freedom that comes with a PPO at a lower price. While it’s carefully tailored network helps keep monthly premiums lower, EnhancedCare PPO comes with a range of care choices – including virtual and in-person visits. It will be available both on- and off-exchange in these California counties: Los Angeles, Orange, Sacramento, San Diego, and Yolo counties, and in parts of Placer, Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

  1. A new and improved online experience!

We’ve been upgrading our systems to serve you and your clients better. The result is a brand new IFP website for California – MyHealthNetCA.com — that tentatively goes live Oct. 11, 2017 (this date could change; please check back to see if this date changes from Oct. 11).

We will also unveil a new broker portal for your 2018 renewals and sales. Watch for more details coming soon on both sites, along with information about a few process changes that will come with the new system.
