Let's talk about health plans for your business

Superior specialty care drives superior results

We’re committed to help prevent, treat, and beat serious health problems through unparalleled prevention and early detection, cutting-edge research, and innovative, personalized treatment delivered with compassion and expertise.

Cancer care

It’s estimated that earlier detection of cancer could save the U.S. health care system $26 billion per year.1

  • Compared to the national average, Kaiser Permanente’s screening rates are 12% higher for breast cancer, 10% higher for cervical cancer, and 20% higher for colorectal cancer.2
  • Thanks to our higher screening rates, industry-leading prevention, and world-class treatment, our members are 20% less likely to experience premature death due to cancer.3

Cardiac care

Compared to others in our communities, Kaiser Permanente members are 33% less likely to die early from heart disease.4 Here are a few reasons why we’ve achieved such excellent results:

  • Nearly 3 in 4 Kaiser Permanente members with high blood pressure have it under control — more than 25% above the national average.5 Not only are annual medical costs $7,418 higher for employees with uncontrolled high blood pressure, hypertension is also a major risk for life-threatening health events like heart attack and stroke.6
  • Wearable technology helps our members complete critical cardiac rehabilitation and achieve better heath. Our virtual cardiac rehab program enables 81% higher program completion rates and 84% fewer hospital readmissions.7

Diabetes care

Health care costs for employees with diabetes average $16,750 per year — 2.3 times higher than their peers.9 But when employees aren’t managing their diabetes well or develop additional health issues, those numbers grow even higher. Our proactive approach to diabetes care helps minimize those risks:

  • We’re in the top 5% nationally for eye health and kidney function screenings for members with diabetes — helping to reduce costly complications that are common for people with diabetes.1
  • Our telehealth-enabled diabetes management tools are proven to help members lower their blood sugar and improve their medication adherence.11
  • Remote monitoring empowers employees to track and share their vitals in real time. Care teams are alerted when new data comes in, allowing them to make informed, timely diabetes care decisions.

Musculoskeletal care

Half of all U.S. employees live with a musculoskeletal condition — and it’s one of the top 2 drivers of employer health care costs.12 With leading-edge expertise and a broad spectrum of services, our doctors and physical therapists work together to help employees recover faster and return to work in top form.

  • Our telehealth program for musculoskeletal injuries has a 9.6/10 member satisfaction rate, with 68% of members achieving virtual resolution that requires no follow-up visits.13
  • Patients who go home the same day as joint replacement surgery have fewer readmissions and higher satisfaction rates than those who stay overnight. Kaiser Permanente joint replacement patients safely avoid overnight hospital stays at a rate of 78% — a far cry from the national average of just 37%.14
