Hawaii Health Insurance Consumer Help

Hawaii does not operate a Consumer Assistance Program under the Affordable Care Act. The new consumer protections and benefits of the law still apply to you.

The agencies listed below can help you take advantage of some of these new protections and benefits. They can answer your questions about different types of coverage.

If you need health insurance, be sure to check out HealthCare.gov’s Plan Finder.  It will help you find and compare health care coverage options in your area.

If you have questions about insurance you bought for yourself and/or your family or you have insurance provided by an employer who does business only in Hawaii, contact:

Hawaii Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs
Hawaii Insurance Division
Health Insurance Branch
King Klakaua
