Kaiser Health Plan Benefits?

So I recently found out that I'm insured with Kaiser Permanente I have a few questions that I'm hoping the community would be able to provide answers to; and yes I have tried calling the number printed on the card, the lady was no help at all, I waited nearly 10 minutes and when my call finally went through she told me to call another number which was the exact number that I dialed... yeah. Anyway, here are the questions below.

1. can I use this card to get a prescription for Retin-A micro?

2. is the card limited to Kaiser facilities only or can I get any certified dermatologist to write me up a prescription?

3. what's the process you go through in order to get a dermatologist to prescribe Retin-A micro?

any help is greatly appreciated!

Re: Kaiser Health Plan Benefits?

You should have the name of a regular primary care doctor on your card with a number by it.You will probably have to go to this doctor first,and then they will refer you to a dermatologist within your plan.
If not,then you need to call that other lady back on the card and tell her you need a list of providers that accepts your insurance because you need to see a dermatologist.She will either give you a list of names to call,or send you a pamphlet of some kind with names of dermatologists.
