The Hawaii Health Connector is the online health insurance exchange for Hawaii. The Connector was established as a non-profit organization in 2011 by the state legislature through Act 205, in order to comply with the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010. The Connector’s aim is an online marketplace that is of-Hawaii-for-Hawaii, one that takes into account the State’s unique culture and works with the Prepaid Health Care Act, an employer mandate for health insurance coverage in effect since 1974.
