While Kaiser Permanente offers good Medicare plans, availability may vary depending on your state and county. Specific information about Medicare plans available in your area can be found on the Kaiser Permanente website or by contacting Kaiser Permanente directly.

The Bottom Line

Kaiser Permanente is a great health insurance provider. It has good Medicare options for Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plans. It also offers Medicare Special Needs Plans that combine Medicaid and Medicare coverage.

Medigap, Part A, and Part B plans may not be available from Kaiser Permanente. However, Medicare Advantage plans combine Part A and Part B coverage. Those interested in a Medigap plan should see what Kaiser Permanente offers in their area and may need to consider another insurance company for a Medicare supplement plan.

If you’re looking for Medicare Advantage, Part D, or a combined Medicare and Medicaid plan, Kaiser Permanente is a good choice.

Kaiser is very good at their business in taking money wherever, whenever, and whoever they can.If you're healthy, don't go to Kaiser Permanente, and if you're sick, still don't go to Kaiser Permanente. All they care about is getting your money. If you're a healthy senior, they will constantly harass you until you come in for the wellness check yearly so they can collect medicare money. All they will do is look at you and maybe listen to your heart and say you're fine. Yet when you're sick and want to see a doctor, it's suddenly not all that important to come in. Yes, they do have specialist in-house which seems like a convenient, but try asking for a referral. You'll have to wrestle with them. It's easier to ask for a referral from an outside provider to an outside specialist. Only thing good about probably is their integrated health record so that they can see your record from other visits within kaiser system. But even with that, no one takes the time to look through them.
