The people of Hawai’i embrace health and wellness.
Empower Hawai'i’s residents to improve and sustain wellbeing by developing, promoting and administering innovative and high-quality healthcare programs with aloha.
- Improve the health care status of the member population;
- Minimize administrative burdens, streamline access to care for enrollees with changing health status, and improve health outcomes by integrating the demonstration’s programs and benefits;
- Align the demonstration with Affordable Care Act;
- Improve care coordination by establishing a “provider home” for members through the use of assigned primary care providers (PCP);
- Expand access to home and community based services (HCBS) and allow individuals to have a choice between institutional services and HCBS;
- Maintain a managed care delivery system that assures access to high-quality, cost-effective care that is provided, whenever possible, in the members’ community, for all covered populations;
- Establish contractual accountability among the contracted health plans and health care providers;
- Continue the predictable and slower rate of expenditure growth associated with managed care; and expand and strengthen a sense of member responsibility and promote independence and choice among members that leads to more appropriate utilization of the health care system.
