Federal Issues

During the 2019 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. We continue to dialogue with congressional offices on how each of these ongoing issues impact Hawaii providers.

The Association served as a conduit providing crucial information that the congressional delegation needed to protect 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 increased funding for the Hospital Preparedness Program and ensuring adequate resources for Compact of Free Association migrants.
