About Kaiser Permanente, History and Headquarters Information


Kaiser Permanente was founded in the year 1945. The company has been active for almost 73 years now. The founders of the company were Sidney R Garfield and Henry J Kaiser. The origin of the company goes back to the year 1933 when Kaiser along with other large construction contractors had formed an insurance company, known as Industrial Indemnity, in order to meet the demands of the compensation of the workers. The company slowly started to grow more by insuring large groups of construction workers, who were doing their work in the same region. During World War II, there was an increased number of workers in the Richmond Shipyard. Kaiser had also set up insurance plans for these workers as well. This company was the direct descendant of the current company named as Kaiser Permanente.

By the year 1958, the company had expanded to Hawaii. In the year 1960, the number of memberships in the company had grown to almost more than 808,000. As of the year 1976, the total number of memberships had reached nearly three million. In the year 1985, the company had expanded to Georgia, USA. In the year 1990, the company started providing total coverage for almost one-third of the population of the cities such as Oakland and San Francisco, USA. In the year 2000, the company had sold its unprofitable Northeast division. As of the year 1995, the company celebrated its 50th anniversary as a public health plan company. In the year 2002, the company had abandoned its attempt to build its own clinical information system with IBM, writing-off almost $452 million in overall software assets. This information technology failure led to significant changes in the organization's approach as well as to digital records too. The company had looked carefully at two medical software vendors, Cerner and Epic Systems - ultimately choosing Epic as the leading vendor for a new system, which was branded as KP HealthConnect, later on. By the year 2010, the system was the most extensive civilian system of keeping electronic medical records. As of the year 2013, the company had sold off its Ohio Division to Catholic Health Partners. The headquarters of the company is based in 1 Kaiser Plaza. The name of the place is Oakland, while the name of the state is California, USA. The pin code of the area is 94612.


Kaiser Permanente is an American company that focuses on the development of medical health care and also is recognized as one of the USA's leading health care provider as well. The current CEO of the company is Bernard J Tyson. As of the year 2018, the total revenue generated by the company is more than $79.7 billion. Also, the number of employees working in the company, as of the year 2018, is more than 217,400. The number of physicians though however is more than 22,900, as of the year 2018. The company has over 12.2 million health plan members, as of the year 2018. The company has 37 medical centres and also more than 600 medical offices as well.


The primary services provided by the company include allowing customers to have a platform to apply for various types of healthcare plans as well as services, that are offered by the company itself. The health care plans, as well as services, include prenatal care and baby health care, preventive care services, immunizations, screening diagnostics, provide emergency care, pharmacy services, medical and hospital care, etcetera.

    This place is really awful for Medicare Advantage plans pharmacy have issues and no one seems to know the answer or can help they transfer the pharmacy all over

  • Mercedes Fitzgerald says:

    We have been a member to Kaiser over 13 years and made a mistake I forgot to make the feb payment. I was doing March payment now and notice that I never made feb payment. Today March 15 received a letter saying that my policy has been cancel. I have gotten any letter that my payment was due or even a call. I have four kids under the age of 8 years old and now they can’t reinstate my account which it doesn’t make any sense when we have been with Kaiser over a decade and one time made a mistake and never received a notice now they want to leave me without insurance until open enrollment. This is so upsetting and frustrating

  • Dan Embree says:

    Dear Kaiser,

    I want to explain a problem with Kaiser Permanente’s system for managing pharmacy refills. I have been experiencing this problem for several years, but I am not submitting this complaint just to solve my own problem. Several professionals, both on the medical staff and on the pharmacy staff have told me that the problem is generic.

    The problem can be best understood by looking at one short entry on my own Medication List:

    Pravastatin Sodium 80 Mg Tab
    Refills remaining: 2
    Status: This prescription is not available to fill.
    Prescribed by: ___________________ MD
    Prescribed on: 11/10/2021
    Instructions: Take 1 tablet by mouth daily to prevent heart attacks and strokes.

    Only one piece of relevant information is missing here – that the prescription is for 100 tablets – but that information is on the pill bottle, and of course in the pharmacy’s computer.

    The rest is arithmetic:
    – On 10 November I was prescribed 100 pills.
    – I was told to take 1 pill per day.
    – 100 days from 10 November was 18 February.
    – I am authorized to get 2 refills.
    – I cannot have a refill.
    – As of today, 5 March, I have been without this medication for 15 days.

    I know how to solve this problem because I have done it several times. I call the pharmacy and am told that the prescription is not available to fill. I explain the arithmetic. The pharmacist sees the problem, wonders why it has occurred, and directs me to contact my physician to authorize the refill – which, of course, he has already done. So I email my physician, and he re-authorizes the refill, and a day or so later my prescription is sent. No problem: just one more day of delay for me, a few minutes on the phone for the pharmacist, and an extra chore for Dr Won at the end of a busy day doing his real job. And, with luck, I won’t have a heart attack.

    But because I was trained at West Point to eliminate obstacles, I make another call, trying to contact a supervisor in the pharmacy department to see whether this problem could be fixed before I have to do it all over again for the next medication that keeps my blood pressure under control – and this is the kind of problem that tends to make blood pressure an aggravating factor. Contacting a supervisor in any organization is, by design I suspect, never easy, but when after some delay I reach a pharmacy supervisor, she listens carefully and, because she has heard all this before, she has a series of answers ready:
    – That this is an IT problem, not a pharmacy problem.
    – That the IT people do not allow themselves to be contacted, by her or by me.
    – That therefore the problem cannot be solved.
    – And anyway, I have caused the problem because I ordered this prescription from the Kaiser pharmacy in Virginia!

    I confess that this last charge is true. Since I live part of every year in New Mexico, and since Kaiser does not operate in New Mexico, and since Kaiser cannot ship medications from California to New Mexico, when a medication runs out while I am in New Mexico, on Kaiser’s explicit instructions, I order a refill from the Kaiser pharmacy in Virginia (703 466-4900). There is no problem with this part of Kaiser’s operation. It works beautifully.

    But not in California. That’s because of what I’ve come to think of as the Kaiser Reciprocal Interstate Prescription Paradox (KRIPP): A medication prescribed in California can be refilled in New Mexico by way of Virginia without a hitch, but a medication prescribed in California and refilled in Virginia cannot be refilled again in California. Worse, all other prescriptions, even those that have not been contaminated by passing through Virginia, can never again be refilled in California without the comic phone-and-email opera performed each time by me, a pharmacist, my physician, and another pharmacist.

    Do you think you have an IT person who could fix this? (Please do not try to fix it by just getting my prescription filled. That is not what I’m writing you about.)

    I received a bad cortisol test which was not even prescribed by my new doctor, but by my previous doctor who retired (thank you, Dr. Bayles!) I have bilateral adenomas of adrenal glands and on-line it said that it could mean terrible things. I called Kaiser central number (there is no way to reach my doctor’s office – the number is unavailable) and they said that my doctor is on vacation ( although her email says that she was back 2 days ago) and another doctor would call me the next day – Dr. Rhodes . I’ve been waiting for 5 days now, very stressed out. Dr. Rhodes called an hour later than she was supposed to (and I am also at work and cancelled a meeting to take her call, mind you.) She said that she has nothing to tell me because she would have to read my chart. I asked why didn’t she read it, since this is a phone visit. She said that she will tell my doctor, and she hung up on me with the last words, “OK, I will not help you!” Is this the kind of “service” Kaiser provides?

  • Charles M Minster says:

    Your continued denial of signing a contract for the Operating Engineers Local 39, who skillfully and faithfully maintain the mechanical infrastructure of your hospitals and facilities in Northern California, and the fact that you are offering them less than the U.S. Government is offering retirees in Social Security benefits for the next year (and you are offering less for a 3 year span!)is unconscionable. The rise in cost of living and the loyal service they have delivered to Kaiser throughout the COVID pandemic DEMANDS much more than the insult offer you won’t budge from. Disgust and condemnation is my comment to you.

  • Dorothy L Hunt says:

    Hello. I have tried unsuccessfully to register for no-cost transportation with Safe Ride. I was informed my Member Services that I was eligible for this service. I was told that this service is available to all members. My primary doctor submitted a “referral ” documenting my cerebral palsy, arthritis and mobility limitations. I was informed by Safe Ride that this service is for Medicare Advantage customers only. Is this the case?

  • Nataliya Peck says:

    Kaiser Hawaii ER is currently harming my special needs child on the pretenses of keeping them safe. My child is severely depressed and suffers from sensory overload and they have been kept them in an empty room, with 60 degrees temperature, constant commotion of distressed patients (normal ER atmosphere) on a gurney that is too short for them ( legs are dangling off it from the calf down) for 7 days. My child is visibly disassociating and sleep deprived. Their mental condition that we brought him in for is deteriorating by the minute due to highly stressful environment. No diagnosis is being made, we get a different psychiatrist do a video call once a day just so they can order to continue psychiatric hold. No transfer to a proper facility has been done. At this point the KP psychiatrists are starting to tell me to medically sedate my child who’s condition is getting worse due to the situation instead of removing them from the harmful situation that they have caused. I have talked to ER supervisors, customer service, drs and nurses and patient advocate (who was nowhere to be found for 6 first days). I was denied AMA and threatened a police presence if I insist. This admission was volunteer, no suicidal actions were taken, my kid merely admitted to having suicidal thoughts and we immediately brought him in for help. The way my child and us (the parents) have been treated by Kaiser Permanente Moanalua ER is a blatant civil rights violation and medical malpractice. Kaiser Permanente failed my family. We have been your members for 14 years and we are leaving your system.

    Hello Medical Development Team,

    I hope you will try a MicroLight “Hands Free” Smart Laser…You can provide another care center…Really fill your continuum of care!!!

    Many factories use these for injuries and every day employee problems…saves unnecessary worker’s comp claims! And, the worker is not displaced!

    I must begin here, Laser Companies use our FDA clearance to market their product. I hope you knew that. Our Laser light is not blue or red. The 830nm Class 3b clear wavelength treats deepest in tissue, the 90mw delivery and rest period does not heat the tissue. MicroLight Corporation spent the time and money to earn the certification. An employee can give a treatment in minutes and is not labor sensitive! Also, Class IV Lasers can do serious heat damage to tissue. Look it up for yourself in court documents.

    Thank you for your website invitation to send this email. I hope to keep you engaged and make it compelling to discover benefits using the MicroLight Class 3b Cold Laser in your practice. (Especially since Laser is the “buzzword” in the industry.) I am thankful to the Lord to know our Cold Lasers are helpful and used long after the sale. I don’t have to worry about safety or harming the patient. And, I love getting that phone call, “We need another one!” Can you imagine having 8 to 10 in a clinic! I still offer and loan my Handheld 2004 Laser in close to home demonstrations. Works just like new!

    Please note, this is outstanding for wound care.

    And, notice how often Doctors use the ML830® Laser following my letter….

    One can position the Lasers, push the button, and the “Hands Free” Smart Laser does the rest. DO NO HARM TO THE “PATIENT” and see results instantly…wow, how great is that!

    Covid-19 is still causing problems,

    I can get a Hands Free ML830® Smart Laser in your hands without a visit…which is 100% better than a walk-in demonstration. TRY BEFORE YOU BUY!

    I can get a brand new one put in a Fed-X box and let Fed-X bring you one to evaluate without pressure to purchase. This consent is not a condition of any purchase.

    Your patients will probably think your clinic is space-age! This creates attention, an overall reduction in healing time, advanced, evidence-based wound management, aids in bone growth, a great attribute in the healing of scars, treats acute and chronic pains,

    reduces edema and bruising, and no special training.

    Easy to use 3b COLD LASER with a 31 year history…approximately 150,000,000 treatments with no problems.


    I am Richard Lewis,

    I have sold ML830® Microlight Lasers since 2004.

    Thank you for your time to look at the website and information.

    There are many doctor, clinician and practitioner videos and studies at the website.

    I hope you see a condition or video of interest to treat with the ML830®.

    I will explain how I treated my severe burn I received in 2014.

    And, I have got to share another truth that is more important than the Laser to me….

    Jesus’ plan is better than my own, that’s why I received Him.

    Jesus has given me a bright future!

    May the Lord bless you today,

    Richard Lewis 615-714-7424

    “I have 10 hands free Smart Lasers; my patients love the ML830®.”

    295 Pierson Ave, Edison, NJ 08837

    Dr. Bernard Filner, MD, (Anesthesiologist) treats all his patients with the ML830®. One year, in his Pain Clinic, he only injected 3 patients for their pain.

    “Laser Trigger Point therapy is the future for treatment of acute and chronic pain. The ML830® has changed the way I practice medicine.”

    Dr. Daniel Mann, MD

    “I have been a board certified plastic surgeon for over 30 years and have seldom come across such a simple, innovative healing laser.

    I use it myself and have seen and felt its great attribute in healing of scars and aiding in bone growth. I have countless patients who now can experience the same.”

    Ms. Erica Fletcher, PT, MTC

    “The ML830® Laser is an important adjunctive therapy for my patients. “

    ▪ 234 S. Woodbine Avenue 2nd Floor Narberth, PA. 19072

    Mr. Bob Clair, PT, CSMT

    “The best modality I have used in 20 years of practice.”

    ▪4621 W. Park Blvd., #102 Plano, TX 75093

    The ML830® Cold Laser is a handheld, non-invasive, low energy, therapeutic laser. The laser is a non-thermal laser capable of penetrating deep into the tissue. In human tissue, the resulting photochemical reaction produces an increase in the cellular metabolism rate that expedites cell repair and the stimulation of the immune, lymphatic and vascular systems. The net result, observed in clinical trials to date, is the apparent reduction in pain, inflammation, edema and an overall reduction in healing time.

    In our experience, the ML830® has a multitude of uses. Perhaps, the most appealing single fact about this unit is the possibility that it may help conditions where all previous therapies have failed.

    (Bob’s first statement reflects using a Handheld ML830®.)



    Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Non-Surgical Treatment of Pain is a great asset…many people, even children, suffer with CTS and do not want surgeries.

    This ML830® Laser Treatment is registered, certified and has FDA clearance for CTS. That took 12 years of research, 2 double blind studies and it cost $4,000,000.00!

    You can put “LIGHT” into conditions such as…bruises, rashes, sore throats, sinus issues, TMJ, headaches….

    Any of your employees can give a non-invasive treatment in minutes…3 or 4…10 minutes, hands free…No heat or electricity, put into the patient.

    Your patients will love the results, and perhaps become walking advertisements. “They treated my plantar fasciitis!”

    I did a “demo” on a hurting Nurse’s bunion, 5 years ago and that lady still says it has not bothered her since. Her Doctor / Employer said he doesn’t know why that happened.

    Nurse, “I don’t either, I didn’t feel anything when he did it, and I know it quit hurting.”

    I received that severe burn in 2014. Our family physician gave me an antibiotic, told my wife what to do, (I did not want skin grafting!) so, I added the Laser Treatments! Here is what I did…

    I treated the sites once daily with my ML830®. I did not touch the sites with the Laser. There was no need, the touching pain would absolutely be unnecessary. Plus, I did not want to contaminate the sites. (OK, Jesus does the healing! 1 Peter 2:24 And, this is using the Lord’s Light! Genesis 1:3) The conditions healed without a scar. It is discolored a little lighter than my caucasian color, but I would need to mention this or you might not notice. The pain would subside after the treatment each time, and gradually there was no pain between the treatments. I did not use the pain medications he prescribed.

    I have experienced many demonstrations like this since 2004.

    Thank you again,

    Richard Lewis




  • Kevin says:

    I just called Kaiser as we are in open enrollment right now. I was told to call 800-464-4000 and reference number 10250. Got transferred to 6 different people and one rep asked me how to spell Cortisone. Are you kidding me?

  • Edward Horne says:

    I have been with Kaiser for 7+ years. Recently my wife and I started experiencing mental health issues with our youngest son. He has stated he wants to commit suicide and indicated the desire to hurt others. His school has sent him home, because he poses a threat to his fellow students. My wife and I are not versed in what to do in this situation. Kaiser has referred him for counseling that does not start until December while it’s currently October and help is required now. I am being told because he is not attempting to commit suicide today, he does not qualify for additional protocols that would allow him to be seen earlier. To me this a distinction without a difference. I will hold Kaiser legally and morally responsible if my child harms himself or others due to their failure to respond with timely mental health services. This is ridiculously absurd. There must be a change in current mental health protocols.

    Good morning I am a member with Kaiser and I was scheduled for a surgery in Tyson’s corner facility, suddenly my appointment was canceled to be rescheduled in a different facility up to now nothing happened
    Here are the date
    First schedule 11/28
    2nd schedule 10/07
    Canceled. 09/28
    To be rescheduled
    Up to now they couldn’t find me another facility for a surgery in a none Kaiser facility as they told me, please explain to me how this can happened in Kaiser.

  • Elizabeth Smith says:

    I have been with Kaiser for over 13 years. I am very satisfied with the service they provide. Their offices are very complete and professional. The doctors are very professional and attend very well. It is also the only place where you go and find everything in the same building. Medical care, laboratory, pharmacy, X-rays, it is a very complete place. To have all these amenities you cannot expect it to be free.

  • Keessass bygtyme says:

    Hah! I totally agree with the comments below. Kaiser has to be the worst medical care facility in the USA. It’s a crying shame it’s the only choice from my employer, the other health company is a fortune. I’ve been on the phone 48 minutes, but I estimate it’ll be much more. That’s no even the issue, neither is the pathetic hold music! Are you people trying to make callers commute subside? Are you fucken crazy!?
    Your team of so called doctors has always failed me and my family. Please stay away from this complete pile of shit company. Wikipedia says it made 88 billion dollars last year, wtf? And netted negative 2 billion, too fucken bad assholes, take that . Still holding….52 minutes…….fuck this.
