Preventive Care

Preventive Care & Screenings

We’ve always focused on helping our members avoid health issues or catch them before they become serious. Our electronic medical record is one key to that. Any Kaiser Permanente provider you see can let you know when you’re due for a screening, because the system tracks your care.

With Kaiser Permanente, you’ll have coverage for the same preventive services you get through TRICARE Prime: https://tricare.mil/HealthWellness/Preventive. external link.  You’ll just receive them from our Permanente providers.

Specialty Care & Inpatient Hospital Care

Specialty Care

You and your family will be in good hands if you get sick or need specialty care. Your primary care doctor can connect you with our carefully-selected experts in more than 40 specialties — most without a referral. This includes everything from maternity and pediatrics, to behavioral health, to specialists who treat serious issues like heart problems and cancer.

Your care will be personalized because your specialty care team will have access to your health history. They’ll also be connected to the latest medical advances and best practices to help you recover quickly.

Inpatient Hospital Care

You’ll have access to some of Atlanta’s most well-respected hospitals when you need inpatient care—such as a surgery, procedure, or other elective care. This includes Emory Midtown and Emory Saint Joseph’s Hospital, where you’ll get care from a Kaiser Permanente doctor who has access to your medical record. You’ll also have access to Northside Hospital, Piedmont Hospital, Gwinnett Medical Center, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, and Athens Regional Medical Center. (Your personal physician will decide which facility is best for you.)

For medical emergencies, you have access to any hospital emergency room, even if it’s not affiliated with Kaiser Permanente.
