Kaiser Permanente Review

Unlike most insurance companies, Kaiser Permanente isn’t necessarily profit driven – they are a nonprofit company with the sole purpose of helping senior citizens. They specialize in assisting those 65 and over with enrolling in Medicare, and they offer a variety of supplemental health plans once the enrollment process is complete. They are currently only operational in 8 states, as well as Washington, DC.
