Cancer Care Webinar: What every employer should know 

With 1 in 4 employer health care dollars spent on cancer treatment, do your clients’ businesses have a proactive plan for managing these costs? Help your clients keep preventive cancer care top of mind with Kaiser Permanente's next Health Views for Business webinar. This panel discussion will bring together healthcare and business leaders to discuss how preventive cancer care can positively impact business success. Encourage your clients to attend and learn more about this important topic on September 27, 11 a.m. to noon. 

 

It’s now easier to get care while traveling 

If your clients’ employees need emergency or urgent care while traveling outside of Kaiser Permanente states, Kaiser Permanente HMO and EPO members have access to the Cigna PPO Network beginning August 1.* In some locations, they can also get care virtually with a Kaiser Permanente clinician 24/7. Learn more about Kaiser Permanente's new collaboration with Cigna.

 

Update Small Group client information faster on account.kp.org 

You no longer need to submit a form to update your small business clients’ group demographic information. You can update this information online yourself in real time instead of waiting several days for a form to process.

 

Changes to HSA-qualified plans 

Effective January 1, 2023, the IRS is raising minimum deductible levels and allowable out-of-pocket maximums for health savings account (HSA)–qualified plans. The changes will apply when your clients renew in 2023. Kaiser Permanente will increase deductibles on 2023 HSA-qualified plans to ensure compliance. Some Kaiser Permanente deductibles and out-of-pocket maximums may increase beyond the new IRS requirements to maintain current proportionality in plan design. 

 

Help your clients cut flu-related absences 

Encourage your large group clients to sign up for worksite flu shot clinics to help keep their employees healthy during flu season. There's a 6-week lead time to set up a clinic and dates fill up fast, so talk to your clients soon.
