Overview of Medical Assistance

The Department of Human Services Med-QUEST Division provides medical assistance for doctor’s visits, physical examinations, pre-natal care, prescription drugs, hospital stays, laboratory, radiology and other services.

The Hawaii Health Connector enables individuals and families to purchase health insurance from participating health plans.  Insurance coverage is not free, but individuals who qualify can use tax credits to reduce their monthly costs.

The same application is used to apply for either free or reduced health insurance.
