HONOLULU – The Hawaii Medical Assurance Association (HMAA) has partnered with the Hawaii Restaurant Association (HRA) to be HRA’s exclusive PPO Association Health Plan offering.


In making today’s partnership announcement, HMAA’s Executive Chairman John Henry Felix said, “We are delighted to bring to HRA’s members extensive health and wellness benefits and savings normally associated with large corporate health plans.” Adding, “HMAA offers the richest health plan in the market with the lowest out-of-pocket cost. That means our members get more for less.”


HMAA has one of the largest networks of health care providers in Hawaii, as well as an extensive Mainland provider network through Cigna. HMAA health plans cover traditional medical care, plus comprehensive alternative care including chiropractic, naturopathic, and acupuncture.


HRA Executive Director Sheryl Matsuoka said, “This new partnership with HMAA provides our members with important cost savings from the very outset. Not only is HMAA’s provider network second to none, there are a number of unique wellness programs they provide such as worksite biometric screenings, incentives for expectant mothers, and HiDoc which gives members free 24/7 access to physicians.”


“At HMAA we pride ourselves in being nimble and able to react quickly and effectively to changes that could impact our clients,” Mr. Felix said. “Retaining good staff, helping them and their families live healthier lives, and making health care more affordable for businesses and employees alike are some of our shared goals with the Hawaii Restaurant Association.”


For HRA Regular members, and other qualified HRA employers throughout the state, these affordable health and wellness plans will bring value to their employees and families. The savings will result in more money circulating in the local Hawaii economy.
