FAQ’s

 

  • Question – I’m interested in KP Gold 80 HMO, but I do have a few questions.
    • How much would I be responsible for if I had a hospital stay of more than five days?
    • If I want to add a dental & vision plan do I have to enroll now because of my “qualifying event” or can I do that at any time or must I wait for an open enrollment period?
  • Answer — There is no charge after 5 days. See brochure above or excerpt below
    • You can enroll in dental and vision, anytime when going direct. If you do Covered CA, they only allow at Open or Special Enrollment.
    • See the site map or links above for dental coverage
  • Question If I have a medical condition that affects my eyes, like
    • Keratoconus (KC) is a disorder of the eye which results in progressive thinning of the cornea.[3] This may result in blurry vision, double vision, nearsightedness, irregular astigmatism,[4] and light sensitivity leading to poor quality-of-life.[3][5] Usually both eyes are affected.[3] In more severe cases a scarring or a circle may be seen within the cornea.[6] wikipedia.org
      mayoclinic.org
    • Will the Kaiser Medical Policy cover it or do I need a vision plan?
  • Answer See our vision page where we deal with Medicare and vision issues
    • Here’s the summary of benefits for the Blue Shield Vision Deluxe 15/25/150 plan that you also purchased. So, yes, glasses and a comprehensive exam are covered 100% if you use a participating doctor and facility. Do NOT go by our summary, click the link and see what the actual brochure says.
    • See the Gold 80 EOC page 15
    • So, eye disease is covered by Kaiser Medial, but not routine eye exams. For routine, see your Blue Shield Vision Policy
  • Question my son is undergoing a medical condition and needs to be seen through the Children’s Hospital of Orange County https://www.choc.org/
    • Kaiser said they won’t pay out of network.
    • What can I do?
  • Answer Here’s the full EOC – Membership Agreement for the Silver Kaiser Plan. I don’t see a clear answer there on how they might refer you to an out of network hospital. Kaiser will refer you to their own specialists.
  • Here’s a Q & A on a Kaiser site that says for rare conditions Kaiser can send you to an affliated provider.
  • I guess it boils down to Medical Necessity, if you truly feel Kaiser can’t treat the illness, try Independent Medical Review with CA Department of Health Care.
  • KUDOS  Steve,
    • I’m liking the Kaiser experience.
    • The Kaiser cardiologist I was assigned to is an upgrade to the one I was previously seeing. She recv’d her training at three of the best US medical facilities for the treatment of cardiovascular disease.
    • Kaiser is built for efficiency and their prescription drug prices are 40% less than what I was paying previously.
    • So far, so good.
  • Question I am trying to decide between the Bronze and Silver. I need to understand what the percentage copays look like. 15% or 40% of what??
    • I was on the phone with Kaiser for an hour and no one could give me an answer. Then they sent me to a cost estimator website that has been retired.
    • Recommendations?
  • Answer You can do a side by side comparison in our quote engine. If you go to the top of this page, you can get the brochure for your rating area – in your case San Diego. There you can get a side by side comparison, right from an official Kaiser brochure.
    • The Bronze Plan has the highest deductible. In the plan you’re looking at, it’s $6,000. When your expenses go over the deductible then Kaiser will pay 60% of your bills and you pay 40%. When your deductible and the 40% reaches $6,650 then Kaiser pays 100%. That’s what OOP or Out of Pocket Maximum is.
    • HDHP means High Deductible Health Plan so it qualifies for an HSA – Health Savings Account so that you can use a tax advantaged savings fund to pay claims under the deductible.
    • You might consider the Bronze 60 HMO so that you get three doctor visits/year for $75 without a deductible.
    • If you click on the link where it says “Plan Details” that will explain the terms and coverage in more detail. Then of course there is the official Kaiser brochure above.
    • I’m not sure about a real cost estimator tool, but see above for sample fee lists
