Health Net of California, Inc. is expanding its SmartCare tailored network to cover those who live or work in Orange County.

SmartCare, which can provide employers with up to 25 percent in premium savings compared to Health Nets full network, made its initial debut March 1, 2012, and more than 200 small- and mid-sized employers in Los Angeles, San Diego and San Bernardino counties already are offering the coverage to their employees.

Since SmartCare became available, it has proven to be popular with employers seeking an easy-to-use plan that delivers more affordable value, said Steve Sell, president of Health Nets Western Region Health Plan. We are excited to add Orange County to the areas served by SmartCare.

The SmartCare network is built on strategic alliances with more than 40 medical groups throughout Southern California dedicated to helping deliver accountable care through greater care coordination and a focus on preventive care. In addition to its more affordable premiums, SmartCare provides coverage for acupuncture and chiropractic care and provides a financial incentive for members healthy behaviors.

We are delighted to be part of the SmartCare network, said Dan Frank, CEO of Prospect Medical Group. We believe that SmartCares strategic alliances and focus on promoting healthy habits will help improve the patient experience and help keep costs affordable for members.

SmartCare is a game changer, said Lambert Hsu, RHU, president of Benefit Pro Insurance Services in San Diego. Employers are drawn to SmartCare for the combination of its affordable premiums and emphasis on easy-to-use benefits that focus on preventive and complementary care.
