Kaiser Permanente has been in Hawaii for 60 years and currently serves 269,626 members throughout the state. We’re the state’s second-largest health plan and offer a wide variety of coverage options for small group, large group, and individual and family health insurance markets. We serve our members using a unique business model that combines health coverage and care delivery into one coordinated experience.
Our goal is to be the champion of health care in Hawaii — for our members and everyone who lives and works in our community. Through partnerships with community groups, schools, and government organizations, we work to improve access to health care, influence public policy, and develop programs that promote healthy living.
Kaiser Permanente safely provides screening, testing, treatment, and vaccinations for COVID-19. Kaiser Permanente also has increased access to telehealth services and 24/7 virtual care by phone or video without the need for an appointment, and has kept members updated through direct digital outreach.
Helping people thrive is core to our mission. Some of our work in this area includes addressing social drivers of health that include:
We are dedicated to ensuring access to behavioral and mental health services that are tailored to our patients’ social, cultural, and linguistic needs. Kaiser Permanente supports:
Prescription drug prices continue to rise, threatening to make vital therapies unaffordable for many patients. Kaiser Permanente has long been a leader in high-quality, affordable pharmaceutical care, and supports efforts that bring more transparency and accountability to drug pricing within our state.
Kaiser Permanente is committed to providing high-quality, affordable health care services to all the communities we serve. We have an evidence-based approach to the practice of medicine, which leads to more effective and efficient care for our patients and members, and better health outcomes. We remain committed to defending Hawaii residents from unfair billing practices.
We also continue to work closely with the health care community and other stakeholders to find ways to deliver more affordable health care options to the people of Hawaii.
The rapidly growing use of nicotine products among our nation’s youth is one of the most critical public health issues currently facing our country. To ensure the future health of our communities, we must help young people avoid becoming addicted to these harmful products. Flavored tobacco plays a key role in convincing young people to try them and is often the first step to lifelong addiction.
Kaiser Permanente continues to support removing all flavored tobacco products from the market, including flavored electronic cigarettes.
Telehealth is a key component of Kaiser Permanente’s integrated approach to delivering high-quality care. Our members receive a wide variety of clinical care and services, improving health outcomes and expanding access to routine and life-saving care. We have supported successful legislation, such as Hawaii Revised Statute 453-1.3, to make telehealth more accessible.
