No-Cost Preventive Care
Includes services such as screenings, immunizations and exams for you and all covered family members.
What You Pay for Care
There is no deductible for covered services.
You pay a $20 copay for most office visits and other outpatient services.
This limits the amount you’ll pay for covered services during the year to a maximum of $1,000 (member) or $3,000 (family). After you meet the out-of-pocket maximum, Health Net pays 100% for most covered services, including prescription drugs, for the rest of the year.
Did you know that if you receive emergency care or are treated by an out-of-network provider at an in-network hospital or ambulatory surgical center, you are protected from surprise billing or balance billing?
- Retail: $5 copay for generic; $25 copay for preferred brand; $40 copay for non-preferred brand; $20 copay for specialty and speciality self-injectible medications
- Mail order: $10 copay for generic; $50 copay for preferred brand; $80 copay for non-preferred brand.
