Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States

Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States operates in the vicinity of Washington, D.C. where health care policy and legislation are introduced, debated, and decided. Among its members are members of Congress and their staffs, as well as legislators and regulators for the United States, the Commonwealth of Virginia, the State of Maryland, and the District of Columbia. In 2003, Kaiser Permanente opened new outpatient medical centers in Germantown and Annapolis, MD., and in Chantilly, VA. At present, it operates a total of 28 medical centers, serving nearly 500,000 members in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Northern Virginia. The region is based on a relationship between the Kaiser Permanente Health Plan and the Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group of physicians and specialists, who share a vision of high quality care and services.
Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States has been adjudged a "Star Performer" in eight of 15 measurement categories in the consumer guide "Comparing the Quality of HMOs: A Consumer Guide to Commercial HMOs," produced by Maryland's Health Care Commission, 2001. Kaiser Permanente is the biggest and most respected nonprofit Health Management Organization (HMO) in the United States. It believes in keeping its members healthy, rather than treating them when they fall ill. So, Kaiser’s policies cover your preventive care, such as routine physicals and immunizations, at no extra charge.
Its members can choose their own doctors from the company’s extensive network.

Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States’ individual and family plans are co-payment plans that are suitable for families with small children or others who make regular doctor’s visits. The amount of co-payment ($10-$30) will determine your monthly rate. Its deductible plans are most effective if you do not often need a doctor but wish to cover large health expenses. There are different deductible levels to choose from.
