Community Benefit is part of Kaiser Permanente’s social mission to improve the health of the communities we serve. We do this through programs, services, grants and strategic partnerships. Our idea of health care goes far beyond the walls of our medical facilities, and into the communities we serve. Below are some of the programs Community Benefit offers.
Educational Theatre Programs
Kaiser Permanente’s Educational Theatre Program helps children, teens and adults to make informed decisions about their health through live performances presented free of charge to schools and community organizations. Programs are usually performed on school campuses and are open to the public. To learn more or request a performance, please visit the Educational Theatre Program’s websites.
Care and Coverage Programs
As a non-profit health plan we have a responsibility to support health improvement for our members and for underserved people in our service area. One way we help meet community need is by participating in Medicaid. We provide Kaiser Permanente pediatric care to Medicaid and Child Health Insurance Program (CHIP) participants through contracts with two Medicaid care management organizations.
The Kaiser Permanente Bridge Program is a charitable health coverage program available in the Georgia Region. It offers low-income, uninsured individuals residing in households at or below 300 percent of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) access to health care through a subsidized insurance program. To learn more, visit the Kaiser Permanente of Georgia Bridge website.
Medical Financial Assistance Program
Kaiser Permanente’s Medical Financial Assistance program provides financial assistance for qualifying patients who need help paying for emergency or medically necessary care they receive in a Kaiser Permanente medical office or from a Kaiser Permanente provider.
