Kaiser has sent letters to its Medicare Advantage plan members telling them that their plans will not be available in 2020. Premera will be offering two plans to island residents enrolled in Medicare. In addition, anyone who is currently enrolled with a Kaiser Advantage plan has the option to move into a Medicare Supplement plan and will be guaranteed eligibility because Kaiser is leaving. SHIBA volunteers are ready to help island residents navigate the changes.
