About Kaiser Permanente of Washington

Kaiser Permanente is one of the nation’s largest nonprofit health plans, providing high-quality, affordable health care services, and working to improve the health of our members and the communities we serve.

Quality care with you at the center. Your personal physician is a key advocate for your health. You can choose your own doctor with Kaiser Permanente or a contracted community physician and, working together, you’ll make decisions about your health and coordinate your care journey.

Specialty care. When you’re dealing with a serious health issue, your health becomes the center of your world. That’s why you’re at the center of everything we do. With our plans, you get excellent care from top-notch doctors across a wide range of specialties.

Your care, your way. With Kaiser Permanente, you can choose how, when, and where to get care for yourself and your family. Visit our walk-in clinics, or access virtual care options, including 24/7 online chat, a 24/7 advice line, and video and phone visits available anytime 24/7 or by appointment. You can also choose an e-visit or email your Kaiser Permanente care team for nonurgent issues.
