How To Enroll

Want to enroll in a health plan that allows you to use doctors and services at John Muir Health? Just follow the simple steps below.   

Step One: Choose Your Health Insurance Plan

John Muir Health accepts most major health plans including HMOs, PPOs, and Medicare. To verify whether your health plan works with John Muir Health, view our accepted health insurance plans

Step Two: Select a Doctor

John Muir Health has the right doctor for you. Use our Find a Doctor tool to search based on location or other factors important to you. Many of our doctors have videos to introduce themselves. You may want to consider first calling the office to confirm that the doctor is accepting new patients before making your selection.  

Step Three: Enter the Correct Provider ID  (HMO Enrollees Only)

When enrolling in your HMO plan, you’ll need to enter the provider ID for the primary doctor you selected in Step One.  Be sure to enter the provider ID for your doctor that specifies the John Muir Physician Network. As many doctors belong to multiple medical groups, selecting the incorrect provider ID is a common error. 

Below are links to instructions on finding your selected doctor’s John Muir Physician Network provider ID for some of the major health plans’ websites: 

Aetna HMO
Anthem Blue Cross HMO
Blue Shield of California HMO
Cigna HMO
HealthNet HMO
PacifiCare HMO

Enrolling in a new health plan presents an ideal opportunity to select a great doctor. However, you may want to first call the doctor’s office to make sure he or she is accepting new patients, and also confirm that he or she accepts your PPO. 

How to Switch to John Muir Health Within Your Existing Health Plan

If you’re enrolling in a PPO, you do not need to enter a provider ID. However, you may want to first call the doctor’s office to make sure he or she is accepting new patients, and then call your health plan’s customer service team to verify that your doctor contracts with their PPO. If yes, then you’re done!

If you have a PPO, POS or other non-HMO plan, use our find a doctor tool to search for the doctor that’s right for you. Search by name or specialty, and view video profiles.
