About Us

Founded in California more than 40 years ago, Health Net believes that every person deserves a safety net for their health, regardless of age, income, employment status or current state of health. Today, we provide health plans for individuals, families, businesses of every size and people who qualify for Medi-Cal or Medicare. Together with our 90,000 network providers, Health Net serves three million members across the state. We also offer access to substance abuse programs, behavioral health services, employee assistance programs and managed health care products related to prescription drugs. Health Net and its parent company, Centene, employ more than 6,300 people in California who work at five regional Talent Hub offices across the state.

At Health Net, we also believe that to reduce health disparity gaps and improve outcomes, we need to enhance access to quality care. That requires a robust whole-person health model that directly addresses social drivers. Progress relies on metrics, including by race and ethnicity. We work with partners to close gaps and improve our communities. Health Net has received numerous awards and accreditations for this and other related work. For more information, please visit our Bridging the Divide website here.

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. Learn more about how we're working to create healthy neighborhoods by visiting the Health Net in the Community page.
