You could be without medical for months or years if you leave Hawaii.
Some Hawaii residents receiving Quest (free medical) thinks that when they move to another state, they can receive free medical that's equivalent to Quest -- but that's not always the case.
The eligibility requirements for some states free medical programs are different than Hawaii's. Here's a few of those differences:
Single poor people with no children may not be eligible for free medical in some states.
Some states has a waiting list for their free medical. Some people can bypass that waiting list, while others can't -- even if they're ill.
Some states has a waiting list for their discounted health insurance plans. Some people can bypass that waiting list, while others can't -- even if they're ill.
Some states requires that you've been a resident of their state for 6-12 months to qualify for their free or discounted medical plans.
Please don't ask me to list the states which set forth those eligibility requirements, because it would be too time consuming to keep that information fully accurate.
If you're planning on moving to another state, wouldn't it be wiser to save enough money to purchase your own medical, in the event that your new state rejects your request for free or discounted medical?
