If you’re like most Federal employees, you probably don’t shop around for a new health plan, even though your current plan may no longer fit your needs. The Office of Personnel Management consistently says 20–30% of Federal employees can and should be changing their plans. Don’t leave money on the table.
Whether you’re just starting your Federal career, planning a family, or thinking about retirement, Kaiser Permanente’s comprehensive system brings your care, your health plan, top-notch physicians, convenient medical centers, and more together, delivering quality, affordable care.
Listen in and discover how you can save significantly on your health care costs with Kaiser Permanente:
• $0 copays for maternity care, and $0 copays for pediatric primary care through age 17 for Standard Option
• $0 copay for telehealth benefits whether by video, phone, or online for all plan options
• New $150 Medicare Part B reimbursement for High Option members
