The State of Hawaii government has launched a new website dedicated towards the "Affordable Care Act" (commonly known as "Obamacare"). Most major provisions from that act will be phased in by January 1, 2014.

"In 2014, individuals and employees of small businesses will have access to affordable coverage through a new competitive private health insurance market.  That market will offer consumers a “one-stop shop” to find and compare affordable, quality private health insurance options,"[1] the State of Hawaii government informed.

A few minor provisions from the Affordable Care Act took effect in the beginning of 2012.

"In the first five months of 2012, 4,174 people with Medicare received a 50 percent discount on their covered brand-name prescription drugs when they hit the donut hole. This discount has resulted in an average savings of $300 per person, and a total savings of $1,250,442 in Hawai’i,"[2] the State of Hawaii government reported.

Hawaii's government has developed a four-point strategy to guide the transformation of their new healthcare system. You can read the full details on their website at http://affordablecareact.hawaii.gov/.
