High blood pressure is called the "silent killer" because there are often no obvious symptoms. But nearly half of Americans are afflicted with hypertension — and we're working hard to fix that.
Kaiser Permanente is consistently the top-ranked health organization for controlling high blood pressure:
For the 6th consecutive year, we have the highest-performing commercial health plan in the nation — out of more than 300 rated.*
And for 5 years running, we have the highest-performing commercial health plan in all geographic areas that we serve.*
