Report: After Obamacare, 28% of Hawaii is on Medicaid
By News Release @ 11:51 PM :: 4418 Views :: Hawaii Statistics, Health Care

From WalletHub July 9, 2014

We know rates of uninsured vary dramatically across states. Yet following the implementation of ACA/Obamacare, there’s been a lot of talk but not a lot of real information consumers can use to compare states by insurance coverage rates. To provide consumers with this critical information, today WalletHub released its 2014 Health Insurance Coverage Report which offers consumers an initial projection of uninsured rates by state post-Obamacare. 

Health Insurance Coverage in Hawaii

  • 6.35% of population lacks health insurance (4th lowest in the country).
  • Obamacare reduced the uninsured rate by 2.75 percentage points in one year. (16th smallest percentage increase)
  • 28.01% of population under 64 is on Medicaid.
  • 8,592 individuals enrolled in private health insurance plans under Obamacare.  (Per capita 49th of 50 states--only Mass. did less.)
  • 26,010 individuals enrolled in Medicaid between Summer 2013 and April 2014. (Per capita: 17th of 21 states which expanded Medicaid)
