Many members of Kaiser Permanente group health insurance do not realize that they have limited legal options to pursue compensation for medical malpractice injuries and deaths. Since 1978, all of Kaiser Permanente's policies have contained strict provisions that limit member's legal options to binding private arbitration. Kaiser Permanente's arbitration system entails strict timetables and other complex guidelines that can cause someone inexperienced with the system to fail. According to statistics, this entails more than 75 percent of cases pursued without the assistance of an attorney experienced in Kaiser Permanente medical malpractice litigation.
