Kaiser Permanente has Northern California’s Highest-Rated Medicare Plan – Also Among Highest Rated in U.S.
NCQA rated Kaiser Permanente Northern California among highest for consumer experience, prevention, and treatment
The National Committee for Quality Assurance rated Kaiser Permanente Northern California’s Medicare health plan a 5 out of 5 – the highest in Northern California, and among the highest rated in the country.
In the Health Insurance Plan Ratings 2019-2020, published today, Kaiser Permanente’s Medicare health plan in Northern California received a 5 and its commercial health plan a 4.5. Kaiser Permanente’s Southern California region received the same ratings – making the two plans among the highest rated in California and the nation.
For the tenth consecutive year, Kaiser Permanente’s hospitals have been recognized as an LGBTQ Healthcare Equality Leader by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, the educational arm of the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer civil rights organization.
The Healthcare Equality Index evaluates more than 1,600 health care facilities nationwide on their policies and practices related to the equity and inclusion of their LGBTQ patients, visitors, and employees. Kaiser Permanente has participated in the HEI since 2008 and has consistently moved up in its rankings, achieving a perfect score in 2010 and every year since.
With the installation of more than 100 new solar panels and other equipment upgrades, Kaiser Permanente South San Francisco is becoming an increasingly sustainable facility.
The investment is part of a program-wide goal of being carbon neutral by 2020 and carbon positive by 2025, Support Services Administrator Bill Bowdle said.
“Having a clean environment is key to total health and to our organizational mission,” he said. “We’re committed to making the kinds of investments that allow us to do our part to take care of our communities.”
To be carbon neutral, Kaiser Permanente needs to offset as much greenhouse gas as it emits. To be carbon positive, it must offset more than it emits. The goals are ambitious, but attainable.
