Medical Group Benefits

Your Health Plans

You may choose from two plan options with coverage provided through Kaiser Permanente or Anthem Blue Cross. Each plan is primarily paid for by the company and the cost for dependent coverage is shared.
All medical plans include prescription drug coverage and cover selected in-network preventive care services at 100%.

Kaiser HMO

This health maintenance organization (HMO) plan offers fixed copayments and no deductibles for comprehensive medical, hospitalization and mental health services. With an HMO plan, services are only covered if you receive them from an in-network provider.

Anthem Blue Cross PPO

This preferred provider organization (PPO) plan provides comprehensive benefits with in- and out-of-network coverage for maximum flexibility. The premium is higher than the HMO plan due to this additional flexibility. A fixed copayment applies to in-network office visits.

Anthem Blue Cross HSA PPO Plan

Provides comprehensive benefits with in and out-of-network coverage. This plan combines a low premium with a higher deductible and is paired with a health savings account (HSA), a tax-advantaged account to help you pay for out-of-pocket expenses with federally tax-free dollars. City of Hope Medical Group contributes to your HSA and you can make additional contributions by payroll deduction if you wish.


Coverage is provided by Delta Dental PPO plan. Certain preventive care services are covered at 100%. Coverage for basic and restorative services as well as orthodontics are provided. You may use the dentist of your choice. 


Coverage is provided by Vision Service Plan (VSP) and includes an annual exam, as well as an allowance for frames and eyeglasses or contact lenses.
