Individual Health Insurance in Hawaii (HI)

An individual health policy is guaranteed to anyone who is HIPAA eligible. If you are not HIPAA eligible, insurance companies can turn down your application for insurance and there are no limitations on how much they can charge for an individual policy. If you are not HIPAA eligible, your pre-existing condition can be excluded from insurance permanently through the use of an exclusion rider. Because there is no explanation of a pre-existing condition in Hawaii law in regards to individual health insurance, the terms for exclusion periods are vague. Most companies impose an exclusion period of no longer than three years. Pregnancy can be considered a pre-existing condition. Individual policies can cost more if you have a health problem, but your insurance cannot be cancelled if you become sick.


Group Health Insurance in Hawaii (HI)

If an employee works 20 or more hours a week, after the fourth week in the position, his/her employer is required to offer group health insurance through an approved plan and pay at least half the premium. If a person has a pre-existing condition, insurance companies are not allowed to exclude it from group coverage in the beginning, as is the case in many other states.
