Anyone have Kaiser Permanente?

If so, how do you like it? Our health insurance has just gone through the roof, we are with a PPO right now. I need to find something else. I've never been with them before and don't know too much..was trying to get some info.

  • I have never had Kaiser nor do I personally know anyone that has it - however I will tell you from a therapist' perspective (since I am responsible for a lot of billing) the experiences that I have had with my patients that have this insurance are not good ones - think very limited hospital stays, lots of referrals if you need to see a specialist, etc. I know health insurance is expensive, but I truly believe you get what you pay for. Whatever you choose, make sure you read ALL the fine print - the "lingo" can get pretty confusing so please let me know if you have any questions. I am by no means an expert on this but I did have to take a class on health insurance for school and have some experience from dealing with my patients. Good luck!
