Health Net’s purpose is to transform the health of our communities,
one person at a time. Through partnerships with community-based
organizations and local governments, we look to support regional
solutions for healthcare challenges. The company’s series of
Community Connections Forums, held throughout the year across
California, is just one way Health Net is actively engaged in the
communities we serve.
