The nonprofit health plan Kaiser Permanente hopes to have a pair of clinics in the Eugene area open by early next year.

The Oakland, Calif.-based health care provider plans to launch a dental and medical clinic on Jan. 4.

“Some people like (the HMO) model — all incorporated, all-inclusive,” said Chris Boone, president of Boone Insurance Associates, an independent life and health insurance broker based in Eugene. “Others want the PPO model — more choice. It really depends on what the consumer wants in terms of access.

“I think (Kaiser will) bring competitive pricing and additional options for consumers locally,” Boone said.
