IMPORTANT INFO – Read all pages before signing this form

Complete and return this form to become a Kaiser Permanente Senior Advantage (HMO) member.

If you and your spouse are both applying, you’ll each need to complete a separate form. For help completing this form, call 1-800-443-0815

(TTY 1-800-777-1370), seven days a week, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

You’re entering into an important agreement, governed by specific Medicare and Kaiser Permanente rules, explained further on. Your signature on this enrollment form signifies that you’ve read, understand, and agree to these provisions. Kaiser Permanente is a health plan with a Medicare contract.

You must be enrolled in Medicare Part B. You must live inside our Senior Advantage service area to enroll. Check the ZIP codes/counties listed in the Evidence of Coverage to be sure you qualify for enrollment.

If you have end-stage renal (kidney) disease (ESRD), you may not become a member of Senior Advantage unless one of the following is also true:

You were diagnosed with ESRD while you were already a Kaiser Permanente member in the Northern California region or the Southern California region, and you are enrolling during an allowable enrollment period. To be eligible, there must be no break in coverage between your current Kaiser Permanente coverage and the start of your coverage in our Senior Advantage plan.

You were in a Medicare Advantage (or Medicare+Choice) plan that left the Medicare program or stopped providing coverage in your area on or after December 31, 1998, and you have not yet used your one-time enrollment exception to enroll in a Medicare health plan.

You’ve had a successful kidney transplant and you attach a note or records from your doctor showing that you’ve had a kidney transplant and no longer need regular dialysis.

You belong to an employer group or union/trust fund plan who terminated their contract with another insurer and selected Kaiser Permanente as a plan option for their employees.

KAISER FOUNDATION HEALTH PLAN ARBITRATION AGREEMENT

I understand that (except for Small Claims Court cases, claims subject to a Medicare appeals procedure, and, if I am enrolled in coverage that is subject to the ERISA claims procedure regulation (29 CFR 1560.503-1), certain benefit-related disputes), any dispute between myself, my heirs, relatives, or other associated parties on the one hand and Health Plan, its health care providers, or other associated parties on the other hand, for alleged violation of any duty arising out of or related to membership in Health Plan, including any claim for medical or hospital malpractice (a claim that medical services were unnecessary or unauthorized or were improperly, negligently, or incompetently rendered), for premises liability, or relating to the coverage for, or delivery of, services or items, irrespective of legal theory, must be decided by binding arbitration under California law and not by lawsuit or resort to court process, except as applicable law provides for judicial review of arbitration proceedings. I agree to give up our right to a jury trial and accept the use of binding arbitration. I understand that the full arbitration provision is contained in the Evidence of Coverage.

RELEASE OF INFORMATION

By joining this Medicare health plan, I acknowledge that the Medicare health plan will release my information to Medicare and other plans as is necessary for treatment, payment, and health care operations. I also acknowledge that Kaiser Permanente will release my information, including any prescription drug event data, to Medicare, who may release it for research and other purposes which follow all applicable Federal statutes and regulations. The information on this enrollment form is correct to the best of my knowledge. I understand that if I intentionally provide false information on this form, I will be disenrolled from the plan.

READ “CONDITIONS OF ENROLLMENT” BEFORE SIGNING AND DATING BELOW (REQUIRED INFO)

CONDITIONS OF ENROLLMENT – By completing this form, I agree to the following:

1.I will read the Senior Advantage Evidence of Coverage (EOC) when I get it to know which rules I must follow in order to get coverage in this Medicare Advantage plan. If I don’t receive a copy of the EOC, I may call Kaiser Permanente at 1-800-443-0815 (TTY 1-800-777-1370), seven days a week, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

2.I understand that Kaiser Permanente is a health plan with a Medicare contract.

3.I must maintain my enrollment in Medicare Part B.

4.I can be in only one Medicare Advantage plan or Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug Plan at a time. By enrolling in Senior Advantage, I will automatically be disenrolled from any other Medicare Advantage plan or Prescription Drug Plan in which I am currently a member.

5.If I currently have Kaiser Permanente coverage through more than one employer or union/trust fund, I must choose one of these coverage options for my Senior Advantage plan because I can be enrolled in only one Senior Advantage plan at a time. My other employer or union/trust fund may allow me to enroll in one of their non-Medicare plans as well. I will contact the benefit administrators at each of my employers or trust funds to understand the coverage that I am entitled to before I make a decision about which employer’s or trust fund’s plan to select for my Senior Advantage plan.

6.It’s my responsibility to inform you of any prescription drug coverage that I have or may get in the future.

7.I understand that if I do not have Medicare prescription drug coverage or creditable prescription drug coverage (as good as Medicare’s), I may have to pay a late enrollment penalty if I enroll in Medicare prescription drug coverage in the future.

8.I understand that I must enroll in the Senior Advantage service area in which I reside. I understand that it‘s my obligation to notify Kaiser Permanente if I permanently move or leave the service area for more than six months in a row.

9.I may leave this plan at any time by sending a request to Kaiser Permanente or by calling 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227 or TTY 1-877-486-2048), 24 hours a day / 7 days a week. However, before I request disenrollment, I will check with my group or union/trust fund to determine if I am able to continue my group membership.

10. I understand that starting on the effective date of my coverage, I must receive all of my covered health care from Kaiser Permanente, except for emergency care, out-of-area urgent care when our network is not available, dialysis care while temporarily outside the service area, or authorized referrals. If I obtain routine care from non-Plan providers, neither Kaiser Permanente nor Medicare will be responsible for the costs. I will refer to the Senior Advantage EOC for more information about covered benefits and services. I understand that people with Medicare aren’t usually covered under Medicare while out of the country except for limited coverage near the U.S. border. Services authorized by Kaiser Permanente and other services contained in my Kaiser Permanente Senior Advantage Evidence of Coverage document (also known as a member contract or subscriber agreement) will be covered. Without authorization, NEITHER MEDICARE NOR KAISER PERMANENTE WILL PAY FOR THE SERVICES.

11. Once I become a member of Senior Advantage, I have the right to appeal plan decisions about payment/services.

12. I understand that if I am getting assistance from a sales agent, broker, or other individual employed by

or contracted with Kaiser Permanente, he/she may be paid based on my enrollment in Kaiser Permanente.

13. Counseling services may be available in my state to provide advice concerning Medicare supplemental insurance or other Medicare Advantage or Prescription Drug plan options as well as medical assistance through the state Medicaid program and the Medicare Savings Program.

14. If I am a Kaiser Permanente Medicare Cost member enrolling in Senior Advantage, I understand that the Medicare Cost plan is closed to new enrollment and I cannot re-enroll.

If you currently have health coverage from an employer or union/trust fund, joining Senior Advantage could affect your employer or union health benefits. You could lose your employer or union health coverage if you join Senior Advantage. Read the communications your employer or union/trust fund sends you. If you have questions, visit their website or contact the office listed in their communications.

If there isn’t any info on whom to contact, your benefits administrator or the office that answers questions about your coverage can help.

Please read carefully before you sign this form.
