  •  Not the medical group. (3+ / 0-)

    Kaiser Foundation Health Plan and Kaiser Foundation Hospitals are non profit.

    Each independent Permanente Medical Group operates as a separate for-profit partnership or professional corporation in its individual territory.

    When I was in the system, my understanding was it operates on a low profit margin ~8% - to manage repair, replacement, and upgrades.
