Kaiser Permanente And HMOs
Dealing with managed care and HMOs like Kaiser Permanente can be overwhelming for patients. These organizations don’t always make proper referrals and don’t always put the patients’ health concerns ahead of their profit goals. Unfortunately, individuals with health problems are suffering due to Kaiser Permanente.
If you or a loved one has suffered due to medical malpractice due to Kaiser Permanente, contact The Mahoney Law Firm, P.C. in Colorado or Wyoming for a free consultation.
Dealing With Kaiser Permanente In Colorado
Kaiser Permanente has an arbitration provision in its contract. This means that if a client goes to trial over a medical malpractice or other type of case, then the case may be decided by a judge rather than a jury.
Kaiser is self-insured, so you’re not dealing with private insurance – you’re dealing directly with Kaiser. If you sue a doctor who is not a part of Kaiser, they will be represented by their own insurance company.
If you sue a Kaiser doctor, that doctor will have his or her malpractice insurance coverage provided by Kaiser.
