Federal Issues

During the 2018 fiscal year, HAH worked with Hawaii’s congressional delegation on a number of important priorities, including protecting access to care through the Medicaid program and ensuring the integrity of the 340B drug program. These will be ongoing issues and we continue to dialogue with each office on how each of these issues affect Hawaii providers.

The Association served as a conduit providing crucial information that our congressional delegation needed toprotect healthcare in Hawaii, along with infographics and briefs that explained the negative consequences of proposals that sought to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

HAH also advocated for Hawaii-specific issues such as ensuring protection for the Prepaid Healthcare Act.
