New Single Streamlined Application Effective October 1, 2013

Posted on Aug 28, 2013 in News

Effective October 1, 2013, the Med-Quest Division (MQD) will be implementing new single streamlined application for insurance assistance.  It will be used to determine eligibility for both Medicaid and tax credits to purchase health insurance through the Hawaii Health Connector.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) mandates that individuals are able to apply on-line, by telephone or by completing a paper application form.  The Connector will have a Contact Center staffed with personnel to assist with answering questions and to enable individuals to apply over the telephone.  The Connector will also have contracts with marketplace assisters and navigators who can assist individuals in the community with completing and filing an application online.  Paper applications will continue to be received by MQD, and only new DHS Forms 1100 and 1100A (revised September 2013) will be accepted beginning October 1, 2013.
