HMAA holding ACA events on neighbor islands

Published On: Nov 18 2013 11:08:31 AM HST

The Hawaii Medical Assurance Association will be holding employer appreciation events on Maui, Kauai and the Big Island for employers looking to learn about the impact of the Affordable Care Act on their businesses.

The employer appreciation events are open to HMAA members as well as others interested in learning about health insurance alternatives.

"We know that business owners want to make sure their employees are receiving the best health care coverage they can get. By holding these meetings, HMAA hopes to help neighbor island employers make the best health plan choices for their companies and their employees," said Reg Baker, HMAA executive vice president.

"Our employer appreciation event on Oahu, which also addressed the impacts of the Affordable Care Act, was filled to capacity and very informative," Baker said.  "We want to share what we’ve learned about the ACA with our neighbor island members so they have time to prepare for 2014."

Baker said the events will focus on the respective role of the ACA to Hawaii’s Prepaid Health Care Act and what Hawaii employers can expect to happen as the ACA is fully implemented next year.

Also speaking at the neighbor island events will be Paul Kaiser, COO of Hawaii-Western Management Group, which is HMAA's third-party administrator.
