As of July 1, 2019, we’ve extended in-network coverage to all members (HMO, POS, and PPO) seeking care at any Kaiser Permanente medical facility. The change applies to PPO members residing outside Washington state, as well as inside the state. Beyond Washington state, we have facilities in California, Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Maryland, Oregon, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.
Getting a visiting member number
Members who are planning trips to other Kaiser Permanente regions will need to call Member Services — the number is located on the back of their ID card — before their trip to get a visiting member number. This number will give them access to care at their in-network benefit level at Kaiser Permanente facilities in the region they’re visiting.
In addition to providing visiting member numbers, Member Services can answer questions about the member’s benefits and where they can get care while they’re traveling. Online details about benefits while traveling are also available and are reflected in member materials, including our new and renewing member toolkits and other materials where relevant.
As always, members have coverage for emergency and urgent care worldwide.
