Covered California Reminder: Health Net Changes for Plan Year 2023
Starting January 1, 2023, Health Net Life Insurance Company will no longer offer its Individual & Family Ambetter PPO and EPO plans through Covered California. In addition, Health Net of California will no longer offer its Ambetter HSP plans through Covered California – Health Net of California will remain on the exchange and will offer replacement plans as applicable.
Impacted households were sent a notice with information about 2023 coverage and instructions for updating their Covered California application and selecting a new plan. Eligible members will be automatically enrolled into a similar Health Net of California plan within the same metal tier – Health Net Life PPO members will be automatically enrolled into the Health Net of California PPO plan. If a Health Net of California plan is not available, then the lowest cost, most similar plan with another issuer in their area will be chosen; EPO members will be moved to a different issuer in the member’s area.
Consumers can choose to enroll in a different plan by December 31 for a January 1 start date. Impacted consumers may also qualify for a 60-day Special Enrollment Period (SEP) due to loss of coverage. The SEP ends on March 1, 2023. If consumers don’t enroll in a new plan by that date, they will have to wait until the next Open Enrollment period to get health coverage – unless they experience a Qualifying Life Event.
