Health Net PPO – Individual
At a doctor's office
Your primary doctor
Go to your primary doctor (also called your primary care physician or PCP) for routine and preventive care. This includes annual wellness exams, illness, vaccinations, and general medical care.
Other in-network providers
Get care from other doctors, specialists or providers (like urgent care or hospitals) in your network. You don’t need a referral from your primary doctor.
MHN network providers
Get mental health services like:
- Treatment for addiction
- Psychiatric services
You don't need a referral from your primary doctor. And, you can check to see if you can obtain your sessions by phone or videochat.
Find a therapist or psychiatrist, or call the Mental Health Benefits number listed on your Health Net ID card.
See if your PPO doctor offers telehealth services. Telehealth services through your doctor are subject to the same copayments as if the service was delivered in person.
You can also use Babylon App for phone or online video consults with a telehealth doctor or therapist. Ideal when you can't meet with your primary doctor or their office is closed.1
