About Us

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 also offers access to substance abuse programs, behavioral health services, employee assistance programs and managed health care products related to prescription drugs. We offer these health plans and services through Health Net, LLC and its subsidiaries: Health Net of California, Inc., Health Net Life Insurance Company and Health Net Community Solutions, Inc. These entities are wholly owned subsidiaries of Centene Corporation (NYSE: CNC), a Fortune 50 company providing health coverage to more than 20 million Americans.
