Find Doctors

With all the health care reform changes, it can be a very challenging task to navigate the online provider directories for the various insurance companies.  Let us save you time and frustration with the following helpful links, shortcuts and tips.

 

 

Start an Anthem Blue Cross Provider Search

  • Select "Guests"

  • Select "Medical" for type of care

  • Select "Medical Networks on-Exchange"

  • Select either "Pathway - EPO Network" or "Pathway - HMO Network" depending on the plan you are interested in. Important Note: EPO is not available in most Southern California regions, just the HMO.

  • "Continue"

  • Enter provider's name and city or zip code

Start a Blue Shield Provider Search (This takes you to Blue Shield's general provider search, which will ask you to either login as a member or choose from several plans.  You have to know which plan to choose or use one of the shortcut links below.)

 

Blue Shield Search Tips: 

  • First, try to Google the doctor's name for the correct spelling.

  • If you are searching for a specific doctor's name, enter the last name only. 

  • Make sure you don't have any additional spaces after the last name, because that will sometimes prevent someone from showing up (this can happen especially if you are copying and pasting the name.)

  • You can also search by provider type within a specific zip code range.

Start an Oscar Provider Search (This takes you to Oscar's general provider or drug search, which will ask you to either login as a member or choose the network you want to search.  You have to know which network to choose or use one of the shortcut links below.)

Oscar has 2 networks in Southern California for their Individual & Family plans, "Select" and "Circle".  The main difference between the 2 networks is that Select does not include UCLA, Cedars & Hoag, but Circle does.  Circle is only available OFF Exchange in Bronze and Silver metal tiers.  If you are enrolling through Covered California you must choose the Select network.  If you are applying directly with Oscar (not through Covered CA) you have the option of either the Select or Circle network.  Use the corresponding shortcut links below for the networks you would like to search providers for.

Start an LA Care Provider Search

  • Physicians and Specialists must be searched separately. 

  • Make note of the medical group(s) your providers are showing as contracted with.  All providers must be in the same medical group you choose in order to have access to them.​

Start a Health Net Provider Search

Health Net Search Tips: 

  • Health Net has several different plans, which can make their provider search process very confusing.

  • First, make sure to select the correct plan year you are considering coverage for (select 2021 if you are enrolling in a plan for Jan. 1st, 2021.)

  • There's a glitch with Health Net's provider finder if you try to search by zip code.  Therefore, it is best to filter by city first, then change your search to address.  At that point you can just enter the zip code within a 5-10 mile radius.  Be careful with searches beyond 10 miles because it can cause their search engine to freeze up.

  • Enter the correct spelling of the provider's first and last name and hit continue.  You may need to Google their name first for correct spelling and zip code.

  • If the provider is in Health Net's network, you will see their name show up.  Scroll down and click "View Details" below their name to find out which plans they are in-network with.

  • Click "Select a Plan" to see all the available plans. 

  • Look specifically at the plan names under the headings "Currently Available Plans - Standard Medical Plans" and  toward the bottom under the heading "Covered California".

  • The plans you want to look for if you're searching for individual and family plans are the following:

Standard Medical Plan (These plans are offered OFF Exchange, direct with Health Net, outside of Covered CA)

- EPO - PureCare One Individual & Family (Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze, Min Cov)

- HSP - PureCare Individual & Family (Bronze, Min Cov)

- HMO - CommunityCare  Individual & Family (Platinum, Gold, Silver)

- PPO - EnhancedCare Individual & Family (Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze, Min Cov)

- PPO - Individual & Family (Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze, Min Cov, GF Plans)

Covered California (These plans are offered ON Exchange through Covered CA)

- Covered California - HSP - PureCare Individual & Family (Bronze, Min Cov)

- Covered California - HMO - CommunityCare  Individual & Family (Platinum, Gold, Silver)

- Covered California - PPO - EnhancedCare Individual & Family (Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze, Min Cov)​​
