Program Description

Medical assistance is medical coverage provided for eligible low-income Hawaii residents. Hawaii has two medical assistance programs called Hawaii QUEST and Medicaid Fee-For-Service. Generally, for eligible individuals who are age 65 and over, or certified blind or disabled, coverage is provided under Hawaii’s Medicaid Fee-For-Service Program where providers are paid directly for covered services. For all other eligible individuals, coverage is provided under a managed care program called Hawaii QUEST.

The income standard used to determine your eligibility would depend on your coverage group. When applying for Medicaid, the Department will determine your coverage group and use the income standard of that group to determine your eligibility.

Program Requirements

In order to qualify for this benefit program, you must be a resident of the state of Hawaii, a U.S. national, citizen, or qualified alien in need of medical assistance, whose financial situation would be characterized as low income.
