Changes Effective January 1, 2021
What’s new for 2021?
The only plan changes for 2021 will be to the Health Net medical plans.
In the HMO plan, copayments for infertility services will be excluded from the annual out-of-pocket maximum.
This plan feature currently exists in the PPO plan.
For both the HMO and PPO plans, there will be a change to the Early Prescription Refill Policy.
The number of days that members can obtain a refill of their prescriptions in advance of their next refill date will
change from seven days to five days for Specialty and Retail pharmacies, and from 23 days to 16 days for Mail Order pharmacies.
Specialty pharmacies will be initially impacted on January 1, 2021, while Retail and Mail Order pharmacies will be phased in throughout 2021.
Babylon will replace Health Net’s current telehealth provider, Teladoc. Babylon has been offered alongside Teladoc since May 2020 to expand
telehealth access in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to the many features Teladoc provides,
Babylon’s app-based platform also offers scheduled behavioral health and general medical appointments, lab and X-ray orders and follow-up,
and referrals to in-network urgent care and specialty referral recommendations to PCPs.
