KPS Federal Employee Plans
KPS Planning Transition Into GHO
KPS is planning to transition its business and operations into Group Health Options, Inc. (GHO), effective Dec. 31, 2015.
Both KPS and GHO are subsidiaries of Group Health Cooperative and share a commitment to providing high-quality choice plans and service. Combining the two companies into one will streamline health plan administration work, enhance member access, help keep costs in check, and better serve members for the long term.
"We are in the process of working with regulators to obtain their approvals," said Jim Page, president of KPS Health Plans. "Once approved, our intention is that the transition be as seamless as possible to members and providers of KPS."
KPS members will not experience a change to their KPS health plan for the remainder of their current plan year.
KPS offers preferred provider organization (PPO) plans to employers, a Federal Employee Health Benefits Program and Medicare Supplement plans. KPS currently serves approximately 23,000 members throughout the state of Washington, with a significant percentage of members in Kitsap, Mason, Jefferson and Clallam counties.
KPS has mailed notifications to its providers and members to inform them of the transition.

Looking for Coverage?
If you are looking for affordable, high-quality health coverage that gives you the freedom and choices you want, KPS has the right plan for you. KPS has been covering Federal Employees since 1967, giving members
the freedom of choice. As a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO), KPS gives you access to our expansive network
of local and statewide participating providers and the freedom to choose your own physicians and other health care
professionals without referrals.
You will find our plan information listed on the OPM website under the State Specific HMO, HDHP and CDHP Plans
category; however, KPS is a Point-of-Service (POS) plan.
You deserve a plan that meets the price and coverage you and your family need. With KPS, you can choose from a zero
deductible plan, a low deductible plan, and a high deductible health plan compatible with a Health Savings Account
(HSA). All of these plans are backed by quality customer service that Federal Employees consistently rank
among the top in the country.
Please note: With the exception of members of Congress or designated congressional staff, the Health Insurance Marketplace does not affect FEHB Program enrollees. For additional information, visit OPM's website.
