Kaiser HMO

The Kaiser health maintenance organization (HMO) emphasizes preventive care such as routine
office visits, physical exams, well-baby care, and immunizations, in addition to treatment for illness and injury. Your providers and facilities work together to provide you with quality medical care services. The Kaiser HMO provides access to routine services with your own PCP, inpatient hospital, laboratory, pharmacy, and other benefits.

HMSA PPO, CompMed, and HPH Plans

All three of the plans have an annual deductible of $0. The annual copayment maximum for all three plans is $2,500 for single coverage and $7,500 for family coverage. In all three of the plans, you pay copays for doctor’s and specialist visits. The copayment amount depends on the plan. For most other services you pay coinsurance, which varies depending on the service and the plan you are enrolled in.
