Products and Benefits
Innovation and excellence in products and member benefits define Kaiser Permanente. From its humble beginnings in the 1930s in the California desert, the promise of prepaid health care benefits grew to serve those that built the Grand Coulee Dam, and built the ships that won World War II. Offered to the public in 1945, we now serve 11.8 million members in eight states and the District of Columbia.
Today, our health care systems are the model for the nation: Our Medicare plans are among the highest-rated in the industry, our Pharmacy services are among the safest, our hospitals receive consistently high rankings in quality, care and safety, and our services give our members the highest levels of satisfaction in the health care industry.
Evolving to meet the needs of a changing and challenging marketplace, Kaiser Permanente is a leader in plan design, tailored to the needs of health care seekers and purchasers large and small.
