KP Bridge Program

The Kaiser Permanente Bridge Program is uniquely designed to help those who are uninsured and low income pay for a standard Kaiser Permanente for Individuals and Families (KPIF) plan. As a Community Benefit initiative, the Kaiser Permanente Bridge Program will subsidize the full monthly premium for up to 24 months. Coverage includes preventive services, hospitalization, comprehensive pharmacy and more.

This program is intended as a benefit for eligible artists living in Kaiser Permanente’s 28-county metro Atlanta service area. Participating artists are expected to use the Bridge Program as an opportunity to grow as thriving, Atlanta-based artists. Kaiser is therefore offering this program only to individual members of C4 Atlanta. RSVP link is at the bottom of this page. Please read the ENTIRE details before signing up for a spot.
