Kaiser Small Group Insurance Rate Increases Infuriate Employers

Kaiser Small Group Insurance Rate Increases are infuriating San Francisco bay area start-ups and family employers, but one Bay Area Kaiser Specialist has an answer:

“We examined two December Kaiser insurance renewals and discovered rate increases of 38.0% and 31.6%, respectively.  Yet, the Kaiser Permanente “recommended” renewal plan was not the best choice for the employer in each of these two cases.”

The specialist is a 32-year veteran of the bay area health insurance market and helped these employers find less costly Kaiser plans that were not included in the official Kaiser Renewal Package that is shipped to small business employers prior to each plan anniversary.

“Kaiser is available through many channels, including PEOs, public and private exchanges and, of course direct.  If you understand changing markets and where to look, you can often find better value.”
