  • If a member is already enrolled in autopay, the auto-payment will draft their binder payment on their scheduled date. If their auto-payment is scheduled before the renewal is received by Health Net, then it will not draft until January. If a member needs to seek services earlier than their auto-payment date, they should manually make their binder payment. Members with auto-payments scheduled on the 15th or 16th will likely need to make a manual binder payment.
    • If manual binder payments are made, the binder payment will not pull on the auto-payment date because there will be no amount due.
    • Members can call the call center to make a payment or set up auto-payment.
  • All members will receive a new ID for benefits effective January 1, 2024.  Renewing members will receive a new ID card in mid-December. New members will receive an ID card within 10 days of the binder payment effectuation. Members should throw away their previous ID card and begin using the new ID card for any services or prescriptions received beginning on January 1, 2024.

Don't forget! Please remind your clients to make their January binder payments.

Supporting a client who is a Health Net member

Log in to your broker account to locate your client's member ID. Your client's status will determine where to go.

Active Member

Select Book of Business at the top of the page. Then select either On-Exch Pre-Members or Off-Exch Pre-Members.

Member ID numbers start with either an R or a U, depending on when the member enrolled.

Once members pay their first month's premium, they will receive a member ID card in the mail. If they are active and have not received an ID card yet, members can order one or print a temporary one through the member portal.

Note: If the member is accessing their online account for the first time, they will need to register, and will need their member ID number to do so. Please see "Where do I find a member's ID number?" to assist them with obtaining their number.

There are several ways to pay, including online and automatic bill pay, by phone, with cash through MoneyGram, and by mail. For all the details, go to Pay My Bill.

There are several ways members can change their PCP.

  1. Members can log in to their online account. Once there, they can click Select/Change PCP.
  2. Or they can call the Customer Contact Center:

For a new PCP to be effective the first day of the month, members have until the last day of the prior month to submit the request.

Example: If a member calls to request a new PCP on 10/31, they can still request an effective date of 11/1. However, if a member calls on 11/1, they will be assigned a new PCP, effective 12/1.

Note: If necessary, brokers can contact Account Services to schedule a three-way call with the member to request a PCP change by phone.

We help ensure Ambetter member dependents, other than parent and stepparent dependents, who are either reaching or have reached the maximum age of 26, continue with their health care coverage. First, we alert all members with a dependent who is either reaching or has reached the age limit. These dependents may remain on their parent's health plan until December 31 of that year. We also provide information about other health plan options. Disabled dependents who qualify can remain on family plans. They will be certified for two years. At the end of the two years, Ambetter will repeat the qualification process. If dependents are not disabled, they have these options: Covered California™ plans: They can be auto-enrolled into their own plan through Covered California. Off-exchange plans: Their coverage under the plan will be terminated and they will need to apply for their own health coverage if they choose to do so.
