Our care model

Kaiser Permanente combines health plan coverage with coordinated medical care — a structure that makes it simple for Permanente physicians and care teams to provide high-quality, affordable, and seamless health care to our patients and communities.

Together, we are Kaiser Permanente, an award-winning health care program that’s uniquely connected to deliver Permanente Medicine to more than 12.5 million Kaiser Permanente members.

Permanente Medical Groups provide the care. Kaiser Foundation Health Plan provides the coverage. And Kaiser Foundation Hospitals provide the medical facilities.

Over the decades, this integrated health care program has empowered Permanente physicians to prevent illness, treat chronic and acute illnesses, control health costs, and create a seamless and convenient care experience.
