  2. Freedom of Choice: Large network of providers and many plans cover out of network providers as well. This means you are not confined to a small network of Doctors.

  3. Price: Many options for inexpensive health insurance. We offer various deductibles and options while keeping low monthly rates.

Negative Points:

  2. Confusing Coverage: It may be difficult to determine the most you would pay in a major situation.

  3. Varying Cost of Coverage: Depending on which facility and sometimes which doctor in a facility, you may pay different prices for the same service.

Provider Type: Health Maintenance Organization (HMO)

Positive Points:

  1. Quality of Care: Kaiser Permanente implements new medical techniques and research an average of 1 year after discovery compared with an industry average of 3 years.

  2. Integrated Health Care: Kaiser Permanente is the insurance company, the hospital, and the doctor's office. Therefore you will receive seamless service.

  3. Free Preventative Care: Annual Physicals, PAP tests, Mammograms, and many more preventative screenings are free of charge once per year.

Negative Points:

  1. Limited Network: You are confined to the Kaiser Permanente network of Doctors and Facilities. Therefore you may not be covered if you use an outside physician.

  2. Monthly Cost: Monthly premium is on the higher side for health insurance plans.

  3. Coverage Area: Since you are required to use Kaiser Permanente facilities, if you move outside the coverage area, you will no longer be covered.
