Kaiser Resources

As of January 1, 2015, Kaiser Permanente began to automatically track medical and pharmacy services to the annual Out-of-Pocket maximum for members. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires the accumulation of all services that are subject to cost sharing for both HMO and Deductible HMO plans and, as a result of this new reporting requirement, Kaiser members may start to receive a Letter of Accumulation (LOA). Instructions on how to understand the statement are provided below, along with a sample view of the format of the letter.
