2018 Open Enrollment: Oregon Individual & Family Plan line-up

Application RemindersHealth Net Health Plan of Oregon, Inc. (Health Net) is further simplifying our Individual & Family Plan portfolio for 2018. We will only be offering a PPO standard Silver and a PPO standard Bronze HSA plan in 2018. We are notifying members so they’re ready for open enrollment.  

 

 
2018 IFP Portfolio: Closures and Migrations

Health Net will offer two off-exchange plans in 2018 – we will not be offering plans through the Marketplace. Members on plans that we are discontinuing are being mapped to one of the two. They’ll have their choice to move to that plan, or choose new coverage for 2018.

  • Health Net Oregon Standard Silver POS plan members will be moved to the Health Net Oregon Standard Silver PPO plan.
  • Health Net Oregon Standard Bronze POS plan members will be moved to the Health Net Oregon Standard Bronze HSA PPO plan.
