Kaiser Permanente
Dear valued employer,

Testing plays a major role in fighting COVID-19 — for your health, the health of our communities, and to help safely reopen businesses, schools, and more. Kaiser Permanente has greatly increased COVID-19 diagnostic testing capacity and can now provide testing for both asymptomatic and symptomatic members. Kaiser Permanente continues to comply with all federal and state laws, including the CARES and CARES 2.0 Acts, for covering COVID-19 testing.

Encourage members to get COVID-19 diagnostic testing at Kaiser Permanente
We recommend getting a diagnostic test if you currently have symptoms or if you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 and have not been fully vaccinated. When members receive diagnostic COVID-19 testing at Kaiser Permanente, they get:
  • Easy online scheduling – testing appointments can be scheduled 24/7 and are usually available within 1-2 days.
  • Convenient access to testing locations – testing is available at most Kaiser Permanente facilities.
  • Reliable and accurate test results – usually available within 48 hours, often quicker, depending on demand.
  • New test results automatically saved to medical record – care teams are notified and can follow-up with members as needed.
Help manage your health care costs by encouraging your employees, who are Kaiser Permanente members, to receive COVID-19 diagnostic testing at Kaiser Permanente. While there is no member cost share, our current testing fee is $75 per test, including administration, which is significantly lower than the market average. We are paying for all outside diagnostic testing, as required by law, which will drive future premiums. These costs will be embedded in Kaiser Permanente's overall pricing and group specific utilization will be used for experience rated groups.

How to schedule a COVID-19 diagnostic test
Kaiser Permanente members can sign in to kp.org or use the Kaiser Permanente app and self-schedule a COVID-19 test through an e-visit. Individuals who don’t have access to kp.org may call the appointment line for assistance.

Sincerely,
Kaiser Permanente Small Business California
