Rate Information:

Rates vary based upon zip code, age, and effective date.  Please run an instant quote to see available rates.  Your first month's premium must be submitted at the time you apply, and can be paid via check or credit card.  Subsequent payments can be paid by credit card or automatic monthly bank draft.


Health Net has an excellent network of health care providers throughout the state.  The large list of doctors and hospitals can be viewed at their online network listings.  Please select the PPO – Individual Plans option.


Health Net has a very fast, efficient underwriting process, especially if no medical records are needed.  While it is always a good idea to apply at least three to four weeks prior to the time you need your new coverage to take effect, some applications are approved in less than a week.  If medical records are needed, you may have to reapply, and include medical records.

The company does have the right to accept or decline any individual or family application.  Certain conditions may be waivered with a temporary rider (usually for one to two years), or an indefinite rider.  If you are currently being treated for depression, anxiety, or high cholesterol, please let us know before you apply so we can avoid unnecessary delays in getting you covered.

Effective dates:

The coverage can go into effect in as quickly as the day your application is approved.  You may request an effective date any time the date after you sign the application and 60 days later.  Please note that you will be billed starting on your requested effective date, even if you have not yet been notified that you have been approved.  This is very good for someone who does not have any present coverage and would like for their benefits to begin as quickly as possible. 

For those who are already covered, it is suggested that you maintain your current coverage in force until you have received notice from either eCAHealthinsurance or directly from Health Net that your coverage has been approved and is in force.

How to Apply:

Simply run an instant quote and select the plan you are interested in.  Then select to apply online or download the application, fill it out and fax it in to us.  We will then stay in touch with your during the underwritting process to keep you informed of the progress.
