It happened during the Kaiser On-Call Conversion that took place this past winter, where I was able to witness a member’s life change. The member was pregnant in her last trimester. She also had 3 kids and she had no health coverage for her family. Through the On-Call Conversion program she was converted to a part-time worker with full employer paid medical benefits for her and her entire family. She was able to deliver the baby with dignity and respect and not be discharge with a huge bill.
The look on this member’s face and the face of her daughters was priceless and precious at the same. She and her family is the reason that makes all of our hard
work worthwhile. (Kaiser Orange County)
