Community Benefit is part of Kaiser Permanente's social mission to improve the health of the communities we serve. We do this through programs, services, grants and strategic partnerships. Our idea of health care goes far beyond the walls of our medical facilities, and into the communities we serve. Below are some of the programs Community Benefit offers.

Educational Theatre

Celebrating 35 years of service, Kaiser Permanente Educational Theatre has inspired and empowered millions of students and adults in communities across the United States to make healthy choices. Educational Theatre offers a wide range of award-winning theatrical productions and interactive workshops to schools and community organizations at no cost throughout the areas Kaiser Permanente serves.

Currently, there are 3 programs available in every Kaiser Permanente region:

  • The Password,” a social-emotional health program for grades 3 to 6
  • Ghosted,” a mental health and wellness program for grades 9 to 12
  • RISE UP,” a mental health and resilience professional development program for school staff

Learn more or request a program by visiting the Educational Theatre website.

Care and Coverage Programs


As a non-profit health plan we have a responsibility to support health improvement for our members and for underserved people in our service area. One way we help meet community need is by participating in Medicaid. We provide Kaiser Permanente pediatric care to Medicaid and Child Health Insurance Program (CHIP) participants through contracts with 3 Medicaid care management organizations.

Bridge Program

The Kaiser Permanente Bridge Program is a charitable health coverage program available in the Georgia Region. It offers individuals with low incomes who are uninsured and residing in households at or below 100% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) access to health care through a subsidized insurance program.

Medical Financial Assistance program

Kaiser Permanente’s Medical Financial Assistance program provides financial assistance for qualifying patients who need help paying for emergency or medically necessary care they receive in a Kaiser Permanente medical office or from a Kaiser Permanente provider.
