Kaiser Permanente of Georgia
Based in Atlanta, Kaiser Permanente of Georgia looks after the

facility. Kaiser Permanente of Georgia has been given an "Excellent"

Group Pre-eminence Award in 2002.
Kaiser Permanente is the largest and most respected non-profit Health
Management Organization (HMO) in the United States, offering its
member dependable service at an affordable price. Kaiser Permanente
lays more emphasis on helping members stay healthy rather than just
treating them when they are ill. That is why its main focus is on
preventive care and support services. Kaiser allows each member
to choose his or her own doctor from its extensive network.
Kaiser Permanente of Georgia offers a wide range of health plans,
depending on your budget and which services are suitable for you.
In a marked departure from many other insurance companies, Kaiser
covers all preventive services at no extra charge.
Kaiser Permanente of Georgia’s individual and family plans
are deductible plans, which will suit you best if you do not often
need a doctor but wish to cover large health expenses. The company’s
co-payment plans are handy for families with small children or others
who makes regular doctor’s visits. The magnitude of co-payment
will determine your monthly rate.
Kaiser Permanente of Georgia has a number of small business plans
as well. Its HMO plans have no deductibles with predictable co-payments.
The company’s Custom Care HealthInvestor HSA are deductible
plans with tax-free Health Savings Account option (HSA). One can
opt for Kaiser’s multi-choice plan if he or she wants additional
freedom in choice of doctor. It has also an out-of-area PPO plan
for those outside the Kaiser service area. You can offer these plans
to employees living and working outside the metro-Atlanta area,
either in another county or another state. Members have access to
a network of over 450,000 participating providers (from the national
PHCS network), or any licensed provider they choose. If you require
coverage for satellite employees who live in another Kaiser Permanente
Service Area, its Multisite Plan ensures that your satellite employees
get all the services they are entitled to from Kaiser Permanente,
no matter which of the Service Areas they are located in. It offers
you standardized benefits plans, predetermined rates, and guaranteed
issue in each Service Area.
Kaiser Permanente’s senior advantage plans considerably expand
Medicare coverage by adding preventive care and many other services
while reducing paperwork.
