Health Net does not cover physician self-treatment rendered in a non-emergency. This includes treatment of immediate family members. Physician self-treatment occurs when physicians provide their own medical services, including prescribing their own medication, ordering their own laboratory tests and self-referring for their own services. Claims for emergency self-treatment are subject to review by Health Net.
