Kaiser Permanente (HMO)

kaiser

The Kaiser Permanente HMO (group #101728) is a staff model HMO plan which means that it owns its own facilities and employs physicians (Kaiser contracts with Permanente Medical Group). Kaiser Permanente healthcare providers exclusively serve Kaiser plan members. Participants can select any Kaiser doctor at any Kaiser facility. You must receive services from Kaiser, or obtain authorization from Kaiser before obtaining care outside the HMO.

You pay a copayment at the time of service ($25 for a primary care visit; $50 for a specialty visit), then you are covered at 100% of authorized services with no deductibles. For additional details, see the 2017 Kaiser Evidence of Coverage and/or 2018 Kaiser Evidence of Coverage.

Kaiser facilities are located throughout Southern California. A list of their locations is available on the Kaiser site. To enroll in Kaiser, you must reside within their service area.

Vision care

You pay a $25 copayment for routine eye exams. Optical eyewear is not covered. Coverage for vision care services is provided only at Kaiser facilities. Participants may purchase additional vision care through Vision Service Plan.

Prescription drugs
