Kaiser Permanente service areas

You must live in a Kaiser Permanente service area to qualify for the Hawaii Health Access Program. Explore our service areas below.


We review each member’s eligibility for the Hawaii Health Access Program by regularly sending you a form to confirm household income and other information. If you no longer meet the eligibility requirements, you will be disenrolled from Kaiser Permanente’s Hawaii Health Access Program. You will remain enrolled in the HI Standard Platinum 0/10 Off plan, but you’ll have to pay the full monthly premiums and out-of-pocket cost unless you ask us to end your membership or until you fail to pay the full premium.

Other Kaiser Permanente coverage options

If you do not meet the requirements for the Hawaii Health Access Program, financial help from the government could help you get affordable health coverage for you and your family. Other Kaiser Permanente health coverage options include:

Quest Integration (Medicaid)

This option may be available to applicants born in the United States or who are lawful permanent residents, and who meet additional eligibility requirements such as:

  • Adults 19 – 64 with household income up to 138% FPL ($23,143 for an individual or $47,610 for a family of 4 in 2023).
  • Children younger than 19 with household income at or below 313% of the federal poverty level ($52,490 for an individual or $107,985 for a family of 4 in 2023).

Kaiser Permanente is a Quest Integration provider and may be available to you.

Please note: Many Hawaii residents-including non-citizens-now qualify for Quest Integration. Those who qualify for Quest Integration are not eligible for the Hawaii Health Access Program.
