Kaiser Foundation Health Plan and Hospitals Report Third Quarter 2009 Financial Results
Date:11/6/2009

650,000 electronic messages each month to their Kaiser Permanente physicians, nurses, and other clinicians using the system. During the third quarter of 2009, members refilled more than 1.8 million prescriptions through kp.org, a 22.6 percent increase from the third quarter of last year. The ease of prescription refills at Kaiser Permanente was recently recognized by J.D. Power and Associates which gave KP the highest ranking in customer satisfaction among mail-order pharmacies.

As not-for-profit organizations, KFHP/H also use resources to support a wide range of community benefit programs that provide care for low-income individuals and support community-based health partnerships, research, training, and community health organizations. Year to date, KFHP/H has approved 1,565 grants and donations, compared to 1,205 for the same period last year. Last year, KFHP/H provided nearly $1.2 billion in annual support to community benefit programs and services. Given the recession's impact on the economically vulnerable, KFHP/H expanded charitable care and coverage programs and developed programs addressing the challenge of healthy eating in hard times.
