    the government chooses not to enforce the laws and prosecute those responsible for the criminal activity. -
    Ron Panzer from those HMO's that they are supposed to be regulating, is there a conflict of interest that is
    dangerous to the people of this state?

    According to Medicare - Major teaching hospitals were [(found to be)bracketed statement not in
    report] nearly 10 times as likely as other hospitals to be rated as having high rates of serious
    complications. http://www.kaiserhealthnews.org/Stories/2012/February/13/medicare-hospital-patient-safety-records.aspx

    Kaiser was originally created to make money and to save money for corporations by providing health services to
    employees that worked far from medical facilities. It served the same purpose as a "company store." The services
    were on site so employees and their families did not need to travel far from work to receive medical care. It was a
    good idea for all involved and was/is very profitable for Kaiser. It also was an easy way for a corporation to make
    money and consequently a way to grow greed amongst those that implemented the program. That greed is today
    systemic within the Kaiser system and regulatory agencies that in part receive funding from Kaiser as evidenced by
    the numerous published reports on this website.

The KaiserPapers is an advocacy site opposed to several medical and business practices of Kaiser Permanente.
The Kaiser Papers offers personal accounts, allegations, news, links and suggestions for people to obtain information
and assistance when they are navigating the health care system.

This web site is about Defensive Patient Advocacy.  How to avoid problems and some things that can be done to stop problems.

Almost 100% of errors in this system turn out to be done or to have happened for more money. 
That is the primary problem with this system.

They have so many tiers of bonuses that can be gamed and are gamed at patient expense that the program just
doesn't work for anything other than bumps and bruises, bandages and fixing broken bones.

Anything else and you stand a chance of being on your own.

    Even though there are many written laws to protect the patients, the purchasers and users of health care
    and with actual punishments attached to them for the offenders; if the laws are never enforced they are not
    really laws at all. So while what Kaiser does may be illegal by the books it isn't going to do you much good
    at all because no one is enforcing the law.

Kaiser claims to exist to help people, and they can, but helping patients is a by-product and not the goal.  

Their goal is to make money and they are very good at doing so, often at the detriment of the patient who often does
not receive needed care or is outright ignored.
