Health Net Foundation Grants $200,000 To Help Connect Families To Health Coverage

Health Net Foundation, Inc., the charitable foundation of Health Net, Inc. (NYSE:HNT), will provide a $200,000 grant to Southern California Education Fund (SCEF).

The grant is intended to help launch a pilot program in the San Fernando and San Gabriel valleys called Connecting Families to Health Coverage and Care, in which trained volunteer leaders in schools, places of worship and community groups will help enroll individuals and their family members into health care coverage.

“This grant is expected to provide uninsured and underinsured individuals and their families in Los Angeles County access to health care, which is especially key as we look toward the implementation of the Covered California health insurance exchange,” said Patricia Clarey, president of the Health Net Foundation. “This collaboration will help provide volunteer leaders with the training and resources necessary to assist their communities in navigating the complex landscape of health care coverage and enroll in both public health care plans and plans offered through Covered California.”

“This gift enables us to expand our health care enrollment strategy deeper into the San Fernando and San Gabriel valleys, where there are large numbers of residents in need of quality health care coverage,” said Yvette Roland, President of the SCEF board of directors. “We are pleased that Health Net Foundation shares our vision of helping ensure every family in Los Angeles County has health care coverage.”

SCEF, the nonprofit education and leadership training arm of One LA, is expected to officially launch Connecting Families to Health Coverage and Care on Sunday, June 23, 2013, at 2:30 p.m. at a mobile enrollment event featuring local elected officials and health experts at Augustus Hawkins High School, 825 W. 60th St., Los Angeles, 90044.
