Our patient-centered whole person care program can help you provide the best care and experience for your patients

Health Net* is updating providers that on April 30, 2020, our agreement with Optum® for disease management for Cal MediConnect Plan (Medicare-Medicaid Plan) members will end.

Beginning March 15, 2020, Health Net will manage members with chronic conditions as part of the integrated care management program. Health Net Integrated Care Management is offered to all California Commercial and Medicare plan members assigned to a fee-for-service or shared risk provider group. Health Net is currently working with Optum to help transition members to the new program to avoid a gap in service.

The Integrated Care Management program supports and coordinates health care for members with complex physical, behavioral and psychosocial health issues, as well as members with chronic conditions, such as diabetes, asthma, congestive heart failure (CHF), or coronary artery disease (CAD). The program supports Health Net members, families and caregivers to help members achieve the best health, functional ability and quality of life through improved management of their disease or condition.
