Focused on closing the health equity disparity gap, Health Net is committed to removing barriers that prevent people from achieving their full health potential. For example, the company offers interpreters who are trained in health care terminology and offer member-preferred language support in more than 250 languages, including sign language. Health Net also provides training and tools to its workforce and contracting health care providers to break down communication barriers across cultures. Health Net members receive culturally and linguistically appropriate materials in easy-to-understand language. Health Net also provides alternate formats for members, including large font, braille, audio as well as accessible PDF. Health Net also designs member-distinct programs and services, such as those created for diabetic Latinos featuring classes, a cookbook with healthy versions of traditional Latino dishes, and a pocket guide for health care providers outlining cultural considerations.
