Welcome to Kaiser Permanente’s Child Health Program
Your child/children are enrolled in the Kaiser Permanente Platinum – 90 HMO health plan. This plan covers preventive care, medication, vision services, pediatric dental coverage and more. To make things easier, many of our locations have lab, X-ray, and pharmacy services all in one place. And if you can’t come in during the day, some facilities offer evening and weekend hours. Learn more about the facilities in your area here.
