Health Net Inc. has reached agreements to resume covering services at six hospitals in Los Angeles, Orange and Riverside counties -- including one in Seal Beach that were terminated from its network last month, the health insurance provider announced today.
The new, multi-year agreements between Health Net and Tenet Healthcare cover Los Alamitos Medical Center, Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs, Fountain Valley Hospital and Medical Center, John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital in Indio, Lakewood Regional Medical Center and Placentia Linda Hospital.
Health Net stopped covering health and medical services at the hospitals . The new agreements
reinstate and retroactively cover the hospitals, as if there was no termination, according to the insurance provider.
“We're pleased Health Net and Tenet Healthcare have been able to reach an agreement that will provide our customers with statewide access to quality health care while preserving affordable benefits,'' said Steve Sell, president
of Health Net's Western Region Health Plan.
