It spans our 32-county service area, where we support programs that enhance people's health and well-being, especially those who may be at risk due to age, ethnicity, or socio-economic status.

We partner with local nonprofits, universities that train health care professionals, and local health departments to improve access to health care.

Q:What is Community Benefit?

Kaiser Permanente of Georgia cares for people – both inside and outside of the exam room. As a non-profit, tax exempt health plan, our idea of health care goes beyond the walls of our medical facilities and into the 33 counties that comprise our Georgia service area.

Community Benefit supports efforts that improve access to care for all – especially the low-income and underserved. We work to benefit the community at-large by addressing issues most affecting residents' health as documented in our Needs Assessment. Community Benefit is more than what we do; it's who we are.
