It’s our guess that most Kaiser Permanente members aren’t aware that Kaiser was run out of Texas like a stray dog with its tail between its legs, but that is about to change, thanks to Vickie Travis and The Kaiser Papers:
In 1997 the State of Texas, Division of Insurance took formal action against Kaiser Permanente. This action and the resultant Kaiser ceasing of conduct was the start of serious financial concerns for the Permanente.
This information is just as relevant as the Nixon tapes are. Do not allow anyone to try to tell you differently.
This is one of the key actions that resulted in numerous patient deaths, for the next several years.
In this instance Kaiser had been found to be deceiving the public, harming the public and endangering the public and the people of Texas did not like it. The standard Kaiser excuse of poverty just didn’t work for them in Texas. The people of Texas also have a very long memory.
The State of Texas has provided to us the documents showing why the Insurance Commissioner took the steps that he did, what he did and what Kaiser had to do. I wish that the state of California would do something solid like this instead of being a bunch of wishy, washy fools.
The text version leads on the following page. Following the text are the actual documents. Again why can’t California be grown up enough to do the same?
