Care and Coverage Together,
Makes the Mid-Atlantic Healthier
Imagine—your physicians, hospitals, pharmacies, labs and health plan all working together for your health. That’s the power of care and coverage together.
In the Spotlight
Kaiser Permanente and Johns Hopkins Medicine have announced plans to strengthen their successful collaboration. They will expand ways to deliver quality care by sharing evidence‐based best practices, advancing population health programs, collaborating on education and research endeavors, and exploring how they can work together to create better health care models for consumers and their communities.
Kaiser Permanente is consistently ranked the top commercial health plan in the Mid-Atlantic, and is ranked 16th in the entire nation by the National Committee for Quality Assurance. No local health plan is ranked higher. In fact, it is among six current Kaiser Permanente health plans ranked in the top 20 nationwide.
More of our members rate their doctor a 9 or 10 than any health plan in the area
Kaiser Permanente doctors are top-rated by their patients. More of our members rate their personal doctor a 9 or a 10 on a scale of ten than any other health plan in the area. That’s based upon the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems Ratings of Personal Doctor, CAHPS Health Plan Survey, 5.OH, 2013, Adult Questionnaire
