You may be eligible for financial aid to help pay for insurance. Here’s what Hawaii will offer:
Premium Subsidies (also known as Tax Credits): You may qualify for a subsidy -- money to help pay your health insurance premium each month. The subsidy may be sent directly to your health insurance company and is available on insurance bought in the Marketplace. In Hawaii, you'll be eligible if you're single and make $52,920 or less a year, or if you have a family of four and make $108,360 or less a year.
Depending on your income, you may also qualify for cost-sharing subsidies that will reduce your costs when you receive medical care. Cost-sharing subsidies are only available on silver-level plans.
CHIP: The Children’s Health Insurance Program provides coverage for children of some families who have a low income but are not eligible for Medicaid.
Check with the Hawaii Health Connector to see if you are eligible for these programs.
Trained navigators and assisters can teach you about the Marketplace and guide you through enrollment. They are supposed to be fair and impartial and cannot take money from insurance companies. Trained insurance agents also can help you with your choices. Here are several ways you can get help with your insurance decisions:
