Employers now have yet one more plan to look at when evaluating employer based health insurance, a job that most HR departments are beginning to dislike according to recent news. How many plans does one have to look at I heard recently myself and not to mention the time and expense on his part.
So as the health insurance cookie continues to crumble a bit, we have more data and pricing to look at. As health insurance exchanges come into being, it will be interesting to see if the insurers will somehow make it easier and simpler for consumers to choose a plan too, as with all the complicated algorithms to sort through today, it’s a mess.

Health Net of California, a subsidiary of Woodland Hills-based Health Net, Inc., is launching and expanding cost-saving network plans for employers throughout the state, the health insurer announced.
The company is expanding its Silver HMO Network plan in Northern California and launching the Bronze HMO network in Southern California.
The network plans are designed to provide employers with premium savings, with the Silver HMO Network offering up to 15 percent less for the same plan designs as its full statewide network.
The network consists of nearly 5,000 contracted primary care physicians and specialists.
