Hawaii Health Connector Finds One Success Story
By News Release @ 12:31 AM :: 3418 Views :: Health Care

Aloha,             January 3, 2013

For the past 10 years, Valerie has worked as a part-time bookkeeper so that she could have health insurance coverage. Although she was a business owner, access to a quality health plan as a sole proprietor was largely restricted or cost prohibitive and working part-time provided the solution she needed.

That's all changed because of the Affordable Care Act and the Hawai'i Health Connector. Valerie, a business consultant who runs Business Plans Hawaii, has been able to stay with the health plan of her choice—and continue seeing her same doctors. Even better: the benefits in her new plan are better than her previous plan and cost about $30 a month less.

Valerie's healthcare coverage began January 1, 2014. While she will continue her part-time job – she's become friends with the owner – it will be out of choice, not necessity. She will be able to devote more of her attention to her own practice.

If you would like to enroll in a health plan through the Hawai'i Health Connector, call our customer support center at 1-877-628-5076 or fill out our appointment form and we'll make sure to connect you with the nearest Kōkua.

P.S. Individuals and families must select plans by January 15, 2014 for coverage starting on February 1, 2014. Fill out our appointment form here and we can connect you with a Kōkua.
