Governor Calls Hawaii Health Connector 'Fundamentally Flawed'

Governor Neil Abercrombie believes Hawaii’s health exchange is "fundamentally flawed." Tuesday, he told "Hawaii News Now" that the execution of the state’s Health Connector was flawed by a Legislature decision to set up a nonprofit. The governor says the exchange does not have the same capacity as the state government to determine Medicaid eligibility and follow through with it. He plans to push for a waiver that would give the departments of Health and Human Services broader range to assist residents with insurance.
