    Kaiser Permanente - Group Medical Insurance and Prescription Coverage

    New for 2021! HMO Plus plan, with the Signature SM Network

    This plan replaces the previous HMO Signature SM plan.

    The Kaiser Permanente HMO plan with the SignatureSM network gives you quality care from Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group, P.C. (Permanente) of physicians. That's over 1,600 physicians located in more than thirty medical centers located in Maryland, the District of Columbia, and Virginia—including 14 Urgent Care centers (six opened 24/7).

    This plan also gives you the flexibility of using ten out-of-network medical visits for certain physician, laboratory and radiology services, and five pharmacy refills a year with any licensed provider outside of the Kaiser Permanente care delivery system, anywhere in the United States.
