HealthNet coverage disappeared.

Prior to open enrollment, went to E health, to get premium quotes.
Found HealthNet, plan that seemed suitable. These premiums were for
2014.

Figured I would check E health web site today, 11/16, (open enrollment stated 11/15) and see what the HealthNet premiums would be.

Funny, thing. HealthNet was not listed anymore. The other carriers were still there.

Went directly to HealthNet site, same issue. Could not find any plans where I live.

Santa Clara, CA. 95051. (Silicon Valley).

Anyone, in this area, have an idea why this is happening?

I was looking at the CA exchange in July , before going on COBRA . The Healthnet PPO rates were well below Blue Shield with better coverage , at least in theory. No such thing as a free lunch. Got to be a reason.

Another factor, Covered CA is crowing about approx. 1 million enrollments in 2014 , in a state with 38 million population . The carriers can drop out if they want at the end of each year, so look for changes , especially in the first few years. The carriers are not going to do this at a loss.

I found this in the FAQ's about renewing in CoveredCA:

Attention: Health Net PPO and Contra Costa Health Plans will no longer be available in 2015. Health Net PPO product will be replaced with Health Net EPO product in Northern California and Health Net Health Care Savings Plan (HCSP) in Southern California. Covered California mailed notices to the impacted consumers about choosing a new health plan for 2015. If you take no action, you will lose coverage starting January 1, 2015.

Thanks. Saw the same article. In my case, I do not plan on using "Covered
California", (ACA, Obama care).

Was planning on purchasing Insurance, direct. no subsidies. Will check
again later. Just wondering, anyone else have a clue to why HealthNet
not available. Maybe just a glitch in their computer system?
