Deadline for Lowest Health Insurance Rates

By Thomas Cazneau

There is usually a deadline when it comes to using a coupon. Whether the coupon is from your favorite restaurant, or perhaps from your preferred department store, the value on this colorful piece of paper eventually expires.

When it comes to getting low cost health insurance rates, there are no coupons, per se. However, like coupon prices, there is an expiration or deadline date for the current Kaiser Permanente affordable medical insurance rates for private plans in California. When the deadline date passes, the premiums will go up. For information on understanding healthcare prices and why plan rates go up, click Get Affordable Health Insurance Quotes Online.

Perks on Becoming a Kaiser Permanente Member

By Thomas Cazneau

When you become a Kaiser Permanente member, you have access to several perks. Below are some of my favorites that I like to use on a regular basis.

One Stop ShopOne Stop Shop
One huge reason that I love Kaiser Permanente is that it’s basically a “one-stop-shop” for all of my health needs. Usually, I can see my primary doctor, get referred to specialists, get lab work done, pick up prescriptions, and go to the emergency at the same facility. If I need to see a specialist that is not at my primary Kaiser Permanente facility, then they are usually located very close at a neighboring Kaiser Permanente location. And since Kaiser Permanente is part of an Integrated System, any Kaiser Permanente doctor I go to will be able to give me accurate medical advice based on my previous medical history and current health conditions.

Happy Hospital DeliveryBy Esmeralda Mercado

With Gov. Jerry Brown’s passing of SB 222 and AB 210, health insurance policies must soon include maternity benefits starting July 1, 2012. Accordingly, carriers such as Kaiser Permanente in California will be adding pregnancy coverage to three private plans, which currently exclude maternity insurance: the $40/3000, $40/4000, and $50/5000 Deductible Plans. As a health insurance broker for Kaiser Permanente, we are excited about the change. We are looking forward to these popular plans drawing even more interest.
