Provider Portal User FAQs

New Identity Access Management (IAM) Platform FAQs

Why am I being asked to update my password?

Health Net providers will have a new and more secure login experience coming soon. To create this experience, you will be asked to reset your password. As part of this new experience, your password reset link is emailed to the email address on your account.  

Affected portals that have not moved to the Centene Portal include:

  • Provider Portal (for Medi-Cal, Medicare Group, Commercial Group and Cal MediConnect)
  • MHN Providers

If I have multiple accounts, will I have to log in and reset the password for each one?

Yes, you will need to reset the password for each of your accounts on the affected portals. See this FAQ for a list of affected portals.

If I create a new account on or after the date when the new login process is in effect, will I have to reset the password to log in?

No. You can log in to your new account right away. A password reset would only be required if your password expired or you forget it.

Where will my password reset link be sent?

The password reset link is sent to the email address on your account. Be sure the email address on your account is accurate.

1 hour. If you do not use the provided link in the email to log into your account, you will have to restart the login process using the Forgot password link.

What if I do not receive a password reset confirmation email?

If your email address is correct, check your Spam folder. Or, try to log in again.

Note: If you share a mailbox, check your team's shared mailbox or contact your administrator.
