Kaiser Permanente Medicare Insurance Plans
One important feature that is unique to Kaiser Permanente Medicare Insurance plans is that you must use Kaiser doctors and Kaiser facilities as a Kaiser member. This is similar to but has some important differences when compared to an HMO Plan. In most traditional HMO Plans, there is a network of physicians and hospitals from which you must choose in order to get coverage for health care services. Typically, those doctors are not affiliated with one single insurance provider but participate with several providers. With Kaiser Permanente, Kaiser doctors and facilities only participate with Kaiser plans, and you must use those doctors and hospitals in order to receive treatment. This innovative approach means all your doctors, no matter the specialty are connected to the same information system, and health records and information are shared seamlessly between doctors through the Kaiser network. This style of Medicare plan may not be for everyone; unless you are already a Kaiser member, choosing a Kaiser Medicare plan will likely mean switching your doctor and pharmacy.
