HMO SB/DF 3 How the plan works Please read the following information so you will know from whom health care may be obtained, or what physician group to use.


When you enroll with Health Net, you choose a contracting physician group. From your physician group, you select one doctor to provide basic health care; this is your Primary Care Physician (PCP).

Health Net requires the designation of a Primary Care Physician. A Primary Care Physician provides and coordinates your medical care. You have the right to designate any Primary Care Physician who participates in our network and who is available to accept you or your family members, subject to the requirements of the physician group. For children, a pediatrician may be designated as the Primary Care Physician. Until you make this designation, Health Net designates one for you. For information on how to select a Primary Care Physician and for a list of the participating Primary Care Physicians, refer to your Health Net Group HMO Directory (Health Net HMO Directory). The Health Net HMO Directory is also available on the Health Net website at www.healthnet.com.

Whenever you or a covered family member needs health care, your PCP will provide the medically necessary care. Specialist care is also available, when referred by your PCP or physician group.

You do not have to choose the same physician group or PCP for all members of your family.

Physician groups, with names of physicians, are listed in the Health Net HMO Directory.


Choosing a PCP is important to the quality of care you receive. To be comfortable with your choice, we

suggest the following:

Discuss any important health issues with your chosen PCP;

Ask your PCP or the physician group about the specialist referral policies and hospitals used by the physician group; and Be sure that you and your family members have adequate access to medical care, by choosing a doctor located within 30 miles of your home or work.


If you need medical care that your PCP cannot provide, your PCP may refer you to a specialist or other health care provider for that care. Refer to the "Mental Disorders and Chemical Dependency Care" section below for information about receiving care for Mental Disorders and Chemical Dependency.

You do not need prior authorization from Health Net or from any other person (including a Primary Care Physician) in order to obtain access to obstetrical or gynecological care from a health care professional in our network who specializes in obstetrics or gynecology. The health care professional, however, may be required to comply with certain procedures, including obtaining prior authorization for certain services, following a pre-approved treatment plan, or procedures for making referrals. For a list of participating health care professionals who specialize in obstetrics or gynecology, refer to your Health Net Group HMO Directory (Health Net HMO Directory). The Health Net HMO Directory is also available on the Health Net website at www.healthnet.com.



Health Net offers Rapid Access®, a service that makes it easy for you to quickly connect with a specialist in Health Net’s network. Ask your group or check the Health Net HMO Directory to see if your physician group allows "self-referrals" or "direct referrals" to specialists within the same group. Self-referral allows you to contact a specialist directly for consultation and evaluation. Direct referral allows your doctor to refer you directly to a specialist without the need for physician group authorization. Information about your physician group’s referral policies is also available to you on our web site at www.healthnet.com.


Health Net contracts with MHN Services, an affiliate behavioral health administrative services company (the Behavioral Health Administrator), which administers behavioral health services for mental disorders and chemical dependency conditions. For more information about how to receive care and the Behavioral Health Administrator's prior authorization requirements, please refer to the "Behavioral Health Services" section of this SB/DF.


The CVS MinuteClinic is a health care facility, generally inside CVS/pharmacy stores, which is designed to offer an alternative to a Physician’s office visit for the unscheduled treatment of non-emergency illnesses or injuries such as strep throat, pink eye or seasonal allergies. Visits to a CVS MinuteClinic are covered as shown in the "Schedule of Benefits and Coverage" section.

You do not need prior authorization or a referral from your primary care physician or contracting physician group in order to obtain access to CVS MinuteClinic services. However, a referral from the contracting Physician Group or Primary Care Physician is required for any Specialist consultations. For more detailed information about CVS MinuteClinics, please refer to the plan's EOC or contact Health Net at the telephone number shown on the back cover.


Complete the enrollment form found in the enrollment packet and return the form to your employer. If a form is not included, your employer may require you to use an electronic enrollment form or an interactive voice response enrollment system. Please contact your employer for more information.

Some hospitals and other providers do not provide one or more of the following services that may
