At Health Net, we believe every person deserves a safety net for their health, regardless of age, income, employment status or current state of health. Founded more than 40 years ago, we remain dedicated to transforming the health of our community, one person at a time. Today, Health Net's 3,000 employees and 85,000 network providers serve more than 3 million members. That's nearly 1 in 12 Californians. We provide health plans for individuals, families, businesses of every size, people with Medicare and people with Medi-Cal — Coverage for Every Stage of Life™.
In pursuit of our mission to transform our community, Health Net works with local organizations that promote healthy lifestyles and combat poverty and violence. Health Net is a proud supporter of the California Partnership To End Domestic Violence. In 2020 we donated over $130,000 to support domestic violence survivors during the COVID-19 pandemic. Health Net has also partnered with Donate4Sacramento to ensure the most vulnerable members of the community receive the help they need during the pandemic.

Health Net is Committed to Health Equity
California's incredible diversity is reflected and magnified in its Medi-Cal population. Health Net understands that the needs of Medi-Cal patients are as diverse as the population itself. That's why we've built teams, models and approaches that work to break down barriers, improve access and reduce health disparities.
In fact, Health Net pioneered an innovative and award-winning approach to health equity. It improves care quality and increases access for those who need it most by guiding effective partnerships and driving responsiveness at the member, provider and community level. Because of this work, Health Net was the first plan to be awarded the NCQA distinction for multicultural care. Our focus and achievements have also earned us accolades from state agencies, like the DHCS, and third-parties, like the National Business Group on Health.
How does our model work?
We address health equity from the ground-up with cultural competency trainings at every level and implicit bias training for providers that reduce existing disparities and tackle inequity at its root. These trainings benefit not just Health Net's members, but every patient served by these providers. We also understand that many of our members live with a range of abilities and disabilities and work to meet their needs by providing communication accommodations – like Braille and American Sign Language - and provider and staff trainings that build better support.
Our programs are successful because we understand that equity begins with culturally and community-specific interventions and have the resources through our national backing to deliver proven programs.
Our Health Equity Model in Action
Driven by our commitment and unique model, Health Net has launched innovative equity programs statewide. We've:
- Improved postpartum care for African American women in Los Angeles
- Boosted immunization rates among Russian children in Sacramento
- Closed the gap in cervical cancer screening among Chinese women in the San Gabriel Valley
- Partnered with respected community-based organizations to promote preventative care access for the Latinx community, and much more
Health Net is honored to be recognized by The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). The NCQA is an independent, not-for-profit organization that evaluates the quality of health care plans.
