Kaiser Patient Stories

Having no real mental healthcare

Published Sunday, January 13, 2019

I’m a therapist in private practice and hear from patients all the time that having Kaiser basically equals having no real mental health care. When clients ask my opinion on insurance companies when they change jobs or insurance, I tend to advise against Kaiser becuase of its shameful track record the fact that it would rather pay fines than provide adequate mental healthcare. No out-of-network benefits, either. Shameful!
