Important News From Health Net
We are pleased to announce that effective today, December 11, 2009, Health Net's northeast subsidiaries ("Health Net") became a part of UnitedHealthcare's family of companies.
UnitedHealthcare has now completed the acquisition of Health Net of the Northeast's licensed subsidiaries and has obtained rights to renew Health Net's membership in Connecticut, New York and New Jersey.
Health Net chose UnitedHealthcare because we feel they are the health plan that is best positioned to serve our clients and members. Health Net employer groups who renew with UnitedHealthcare will enjoy the benefit of their vast resources, and innovative solutions. In addition, UnitedHealthcare will offer Health Net clients a seamless renewal experience that will avoid the administrative issues associated with enrolling a group with a new carrier. Small group clients in New Jersey will have to confirm their acceptance of the renewal in writing, but all group information will be sent from Health Net to UnitedHealthcare with no need to complete new enrollment forms etc.
If your clients choose to renew with UnitedHealthcare, they will experience all that UnitedHealthcare has to offer including broader access to quality care through UnitedHealthcare's large local and national networks, robust clinical programs and choice from a range of affordable products.
UnitedHealthcare focuses on helping members stay healthy and works with employers and their brokers to find new ways to keep costs down and promote wellness in the workplace. They also offer discounts on a wide range of health-related products and services, robust wellness programs, and innovative online tools. On a national level, UnitedHealthcare serves over 25 million members with a network of more than 606,000 health care professionals, 5,015 hospitals and 60,000 pharmacies. Locally in the tri-state area, over 16,000 businesses have stayed enrolled in an Oxford product for more than 10 years.
Formal notification of the closing will be mailed to your clients and their members. This notification is currently under review by state regulators and will be sent as soon we receive approval. At this time we will also send you copies of these communications through an upcoming Health Net Basics.
We look forward to working closely with you to make UnitedHealthcare products available to Health Net's Northeast customers. Please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions to help guide you through conversations with your clients. The following is a quick overview:
We will continue to communicate any important developments and will work collaboratively with you to make this process a smooth one. UnitedHealthcare looks forward to expanding their relationship with you to offer their comprehensive portfolio of products and services to your Health Net clients in the Northeast.
If you have any additional questions, please contact your UnitedHealthcare or Health Net representative.
