If an employee is disabled and unable to work, an employer must continue to pay the employer's share of the Hawaii Prepaid Health Care Act (HPHCA) premium cost for three months following the month during which the employee became hospitalized or disabled from working, or the period for which the employer has undertaken the payment of the employee’s regular wages in such case, whichever is longer (Haw. Rev. Stat. Sec. 393-15). There is additional information about HPHCA.
Individuals not eligible for COBRA coverage may be eligible for Hawaii Med-Quest coverage. For more information on Hawaii Med-Quest, visit http://www.med-quest.us/index.html.
