Understanding your costs


Part of getting the most out of your deductible plan is knowing how much and when you can expect to pay for services. When you have an idea of what you’ll pay before and after your visit, you’ll feel more confident about getting the care you need to stay healthy.

Before your visit — get an estimate


Before your visit, get an idea of what you'll pay for your scheduled services at kp.org/costestimates. You can get an estimate of what you’ll need to pay for more than 300 common exams, tests, and procedures. Watch this short video to see how it works. Estimates are based on your plan benefits and whether you’ve reached your annual deductible — so you get personalized information every time.

To use this secure feature, you’ll need to be registered at kp.org.

During your visit — pay when you check in


When you come in for care, the receptionist will usually ask you to make a payment based on your scheduled services. Your payment may cover only part of what you owe, especially if you get any unscheduled services during your visit. In that case, you'll get a bill for the difference.

If you have a health reimbursement arrangement (HRA), health savings account (HSA), or flexible spending account (FSA) and received a Health Payment Card or debit card for your account, you can use it to help pay for qualified medical expenses.

After your visit — track your bills and expenses online or on your mobile device

You'll get a bill for any balance you owe. You'll also get an Explanation of Benefits. This summary isn't a bill. It's a statement that helps you keep track of how close you are to reaching your deductible and out-of-pocket maximum. Before your EOB arrives, use our Estimates tool to get the most current overview of how close you are to reaching your deductible and out-of-pocket maximum. You can check bill history, make a payment, and manage payment methods online at kp.org or using the Kaiser Permanente app.
