Once you become a member, here are easy steps to get you started:


Step 1: Choose Your Doctor — and Change Anytime

Getting you connected with a doctor who suits your individual needs is the first priority. Choose from a wide range of great doctors. And remember — you can change for any reason, at any time. Browse our online doctor profiles at kp.org/mydoctor/connect and choose a doctor there.

Step 2: Create Your Online Account

Once your coverage starts, you can create your account through the Kaiser Permanente app or at kp.org/newmember. Then you can conveniently manage your health through our mobile app or kp.org. Set up an appointment, request a refill, email your doctor’s office with nonurgent questions, see lab results and more—whenever, wherever.

Step 3: Get Your Prescriptions

Finally, we’ll help you transition your current prescriptions to Kaiser Permanente. Just go to kp.org/newmember and follow the steps. Or give us a call at 1-877-RXKAISER (1-877-795-2473) (TTY 711), weekdays, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.; or Sunday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Be sure to have your prescription information handy.
