Kaiser Permanente members can now plan for their medical expenses, with a new, national cost estimation tool that provides real-time projections of costs for common services.
Access the new tool to get fast and secure cost estimates for more than 300 clinical services. By logging in to kp.org, members can get a personalized estimate of their out-of-pocket costs for some of the most common medical exams, tests, and procedures. The Treatment Cost Calculator (also known as “Estimates”) uses the most current pricing and benefits information to help members make more informed decisions about their health care.
Cost estimates take into account:
- the historical average cost of a service within a member’s geographic region
- a member’s health plan benefits and coverage information
- the amount a member has paid toward any deductible or out-of-pocket maximum
Members can access the calculator in the My Health Manager section at kp.org by clicking “My coverage & costs,” then “Estimates.” Watch a demonstration video to see how the tool works.
