Here, There and Everywhere
KPS offers a variety of health and pharmacy plans to help keep you and your family well. We have an extensive local provider network you can rely on, and provide the coverage you need — when and where you need it — along with top-rated customer service. What's more, our federal plan includes routine care benefits, as well as urgent and emergency care, worldwide.
Three FEHBP plans include the following comprehensive benefits our members value: dental care, vision coverage, alternative care, wellness programs, and a tobacco cessation program.
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 plan compatible with a health savings account (HSA). These plans are backed by quality customer service that federal employees consistently rank among the top in the country.
If you receive care outside of Washington, notify KPS Health Plans by completing the Out of Service Area Notification form, and email, mail, or fax it to KPS. Pharmacy benefits will also be covered. Dental services will only be covered in Washington. For more information, see FEHB Service Area Coverage FAQ or call KPS customer service at 1-800-552-7114.
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.
