Hello!!

Health care is not one size fits all, which is why CaliforniaChoice gives you the freedom to choose from eight different health plans in a single program. With so many options, CaliforniaChoice fits the diverse health care needs of your employees – there’s a plan for everyone.

To help you understand the key benefits of each plan in the CaliforniaChoice program, we’re comparing each of them and highlighting what makes them unique. In this comparison we’re looking at Kaiser Permanente and Western Health Advantage.

Kaiser Permanente

Kaiser Permanente was founded in 1945 and was one of the nation’s first health programs to offer comprehensive health care services on a prepaid basis.

CaliforniaChoice gives you and your employees the ability to choose the health plan that meets your unique needs. For example, one of your employees could choose Kaiser Permanente because of its statewide HMO network. Another employee could select Western Health Advantage because of its 24/7 accessibility to nurses and doctors.

However, the advantages of CaliforniaChoice go beyond great health insurance options. There are extras for employers, too. CaliforniaChoice offers single source administration for enrollment, billing, eligibility, and customer service. You can manage all of your employees’ health insurance benefits in a single program – and pay just one monthly bill.
