"Q: Can I get help if my income is over the Medicaid standard? "
"The Hawaii QUEST Program (QUEST) is a Medicaid managed care program where the State pays health plans to provide coverage of medical and mental health services. Dental Services are provided on a fee-for-service basis. "
Many groups of people are covered by Medicaid. Even within these groups, though, certain requirements must be met. These may include your age, whether you are pregnant, disabled, blind, or aged; your income and resources (like bank accounts, real property, or other items that can be sold for cash); and whether you are a U.S. citizen or a lawfully admitted immigrant. The rules for counting your income and resources vary from state to state and from group to group. There are special rules for those who live in nursing homes and for disabled children living at home.

Medicaid Cuts Are Bad Medicine - Hawaii
2 pages; languages: English
from the brochure or publication: "Medicaid Is a Boon to Hawaii’s Economy - In 2005, Hawaii will spend just over $929 million on Medicaid. Of this, the federal government will contribute nearly $544 million.1 This $929 million dollar investment will give Hawaii’s economy a shot in the arm—stimulating state business activity and creating new jobs. Because Medicaid spending has an economic multiplier effect, each $1 million that Hawaii invests in Medicaid results in nearly $2.8 million in new business activity and nearly 26 newly created jobs."
