to support the health of those in need

In 2018, Kaiser Permanente gave nearly $2.5 billion to provide health services to those who couldn’t provide for their own, including children, students, working adults, and the elderly.

Our spending helped:

969,000 people who received Kaiser Permanente care through Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program.

309,000 people who received charitable coverage and financial assistance from Kaiser Permanente.

Community and safety-net providers who received grants, training, and technical assistance from us.

Bringing together care, affordability, and community health is vital to both our 12 million members and the 68 million people who live in the communities we serve. Why do we do it? Because healthy individuals need healthy communities — and healthy communities need healthy people.
