RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif. -- December 17, 2012

Health Net Federal Services, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Health Net,
Inc. (NYSE:HNT), today announced that it has been designated a 2013 Military
Friendly Employer by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs magazine.

“Health Net Federal Services is honored to be recognized as a 2013 Military
Friendly Employer by G.I. Jobs. We are privileged to assist the men and women
who serve, veterans, and their families. We understand the importance of
getting them back to work and the value they bring to the workforce,” said
ThomasCarrato, president, Health Net Federal Services. He added, “Hiring
those who have served is not charity – it’s good business.”

Victory Media first published a list of its top military-friendly companies in
2003. The list has grown from 10 to 100 over the years, and this was the first
year Victory Media recognized a separate roll of employers not found in the
Top 100. Health Net Federal Services earned a No. 33 ranking on the G.I. Jobs
Top 50 in 2008.

“Due to the fierce competition for our Top 100 list, many great programs
failed to make this year’s list simply because interest and participation in
hiring military is at an all-time high,” said Sean Collins, vice president for
Victory Media and director for G.I.Jobs. “So, we created the Military
Friendly Employers designation outside of the Top 100 to recognize another one
percent of companies that have great programs and opportunities for veterans
and their spouses.”

Companies earned the Military Friendly Employers distinction via the same
methodology as Victory Media’s Top 100 Military Friendly Employers list, which
was announced earlier this year. Criteria for designation involved reaching a
benchmark score across key areas such as strength of military recruiting
efforts and percentage of new hires with prior military service, in addition
to retention programs and company policies on National Guard and Reserve

Health Net Federal Services expects to be showcased along with other Military
Friendly Employers in the January 2013 issue of G.I. Jobs.
