Working together to make health care more affordable 

Affordability = high-quality health care at a price individuals and families can reasonably manage as a portion of household income.

We all have a role to play in achieving our mission, driving quality up and cost down to a price individuals and families can afford. We’re proud that unit-based teams (UBTs) have launched thousands of efficiency and cost-reduction projects that are getting results for members and patients. And as a nonprofit organization, 100 percent of our revenue is used to deliver on our mission.

  • 97 cents of every dollar goes to providing care and coverage to our members.
  • 3 cents of every dollar is our margin, which is reinvested into Kaiser Permanente buildings, equipment, technology, and retirement obligations for our employees so we can continue to care for our members and patients.

If we work together we can make health care affordable for all—so our standard of care will be available to everyone in the nation.
