Kaiser will pay for therapy and reimburse members denied treatment
Sacramento Business Journal

Kaiser Permanente must provide medically necessary physical, occupational and speech therapy to members denied treatment since January 2009 — and reimburse those who paid for the services themselves — according to a settlement with state managed-care regulators. Announced Friday, the settlement gives Kaiser 60 days to contact members who have filed complaints about denial of this kind of care since that date. The California Department of Managed Health Care received about 100 complaints, but there may be more members eligible for treatment and payment, state officials said.
