Kaiser Permanente to Discontinue Services from GlobalFit Wellness Vendor

All programs and services offered to Kaiser Permanente members by Global Affiliates, Inc., (GlobalFit) will be discontinued as of January 1, 2012. A variety of health and wellness programs and services continue to be available through the ChooseHealthy® program offered by American Specialty Health Incorporated (ASH). A letter about this change has been mailed to State employees and non-Medicare eligible retiree group members enrolled in the Kaiser HMO plan.

The ChooseHealthy program is available to members at no cost. It offers a directory of credentialed complementary health care providers, an online store, savings on health products and services, and more. Through the ChooseHealthy program, members receive discounts on such services as acupuncture, massage therapy services and chiropractic care. Kaiser Permanente members also have access to ChooseHealthy premium programs at no cost, including exercise and meal/nutrition planners, online coaching and health trackers.
