Kaiser Permanente Hawai’i announced today that it will not be terminating health coverage for non-payment through April 2020 and will “continue to evaluate the situation moving forward.”

“As the economic impact of the coronavirus deepens, we want to help. We’re deeply committed
to making sure our members and the communities we serve have access to the care they
need,” a statement from the company read.

“We know that many of our friends and neighbors face economic uncertainty during this
unprecedented time,” said Ron Vance, president Kaiser Foundation Health Plan and Hospitals,
Hawai’i Region.

“We feel the pain of those affected and want to make sure they’re able to focus on taking care of their families and not on the cost of their care.”
