Kaiser COVID Benefit Enhancements

Attention Kaiser Permanente members:

Kaiser has added new benefit enhancements.

  • Up to 80 hours of additional paid time off if you need to be away from work because you have tested positive for COVID-19.
  • Grants of up to $300 per week to help pay for childcare for your school-age children or dependent disabled adult children while you are at work. Grant amounts are prorated if you work less than 32 hours; the minimum grant will be $210 per week. Eligible caregivers exclude spouse or domestic partner residing in the child’s home. Other relatives may be eligible caregivers.
