program investments improve health outcomes
Community Health is part of the Kaiser Foundation Health Plan of Georgia’s social mission to improve the health of the communities we serve.
We do this through various programs that focus on increasing access to care and improving conditions for health and equity.
In Georgia, Medicaid is run by the Georgia Department of Community Health (DCH). Children who are eligible for Georgia Families or PeachCare for Kids are enrolled with a Care Management Organization and can be seen by a Kaiser Permanente pediatrician. With Kaiser Permanente, your children have access to participating doctors at our medical offices throughout metro Atlanta and in Athens.
charitable care (bridge)
Kaiser Permanente’s CHC programs provide health care coverage to low-income individuals and families who don’t have access to other public or private health coverage. CHC members receive:
- Enrollment in a Kaiser Permanente Individuals and Families health plan
- A Kaiser Permanente subsidy to help pay monthly premiums
- Financial assistance that eliminates out-of-pocket costs for most covered services provided at Kaiser Permanente facilities
medical financial assistance
The Medical Financial Assistance (MFA) program helps low-income, uninsured, or under-insured patients who need help paying for all or part of their medical care received from Kaiser Permanente. Patients are eligible for financial assistance when their family income is at or below 300% of Federal Poverty Guidelines. Patients should consult with a counselor to determine eligibility and for assistance applying. Refer to the MFA brochure for a complete description of the program, eligibility requirements, and contact information.
Kaiser Permanente’s Educational Theater Program (ETP) has been providing health education to various audiences in Atlanta since 1995. ETP has reached over 1 million people with empowering messages to improve physical and emotional health. All Educational Theater performances are presented free of charge to metro-Atlanta as a community health initiative.
