Kaiser and Lyme Disease
Kaiser probably will refuse to test for this disease if you become ill from a tick bite. It is unlikely that Kaiser will treat you appropriately, and within the accepted standard of care for tick related illness in the event you obtain a diagnosis, either in the system or outside the system from an infectious disease specialist that specializes in tick borne disease. This section can provide information for obtaining diagnosis and appropriate treatments.
How to get your Medical Records

Self explanatory heading for the above link. California Nurses Association provides eye opening data.
Your Rights as an HMO Patient
You do have rights and you need to learn what they are.
A Newly recognized pattern for all Kaiser Patients to make note of.
Important pattern we have noticed - Do not get sick in the last and first quarters of any year if you are with Kaiser - They seem to have more people misdiagnosed and denied medical care in that time period. Probably a so called budget problem that time of the year is the cause.
Kaiser DOR experiments on the patient population
Kaiser has a lot of patient studies going on that are paid for by pharmaceutical companies. Patient's may want to ask their doctor or nurse if they are part of an experiment and check with the FDA for side effects if they have unanswered questions.
studies are at: ClinicalTrials.gov,http://www.clinicaltrials.gov/
Your participation is helping the Kaiser profit margin more than any good for the world that Kaiser can try to convince you is going on.
Simply by virtue of being a Kaiser member, you and your children are consenting to being part of a great big public database that all sorts of people have access to for all of your medical and other types of information including financial. That is why universities, government agencies and credit reporting companies love Kaiser. They will sell them patient confidential information on anything and they won't bat an eye doing it. HIPAA helps them do it.

and the CDC reported that in 1991 there was a measles epidemic in this
country. In 1991 I was caring for an infant and could not
any mention of any epidemic in that time period. I checked
reporting and with CDC reporting in that time period and there was no
of measles in this country in 1991. They simply made up a
an epidemic to justify forcing a financially profitable vaccine on the
public. Just one CDC link to check out for example:
This past year Kaiser staff has also scared young mothers that questioned them into consenting to have their children receive the pnuemonia vaccine. Kaiser staff in at least one location foolishly told at least one parent that thousands of children last year (2004) suffered horribly from the flu and thousands died from pnuemonia. It never happened and Kaiser should be ashamed that their staff would act like that. Please educate yourselves before submitting you or your children to any experimentation. If the doctors have nothing to hide they won't have a problem showing you the proof of anything they say.
