The Hualālai ‘Ohana Foundation offers Medical Financial Assistance to cover expenses incurred by the employee or immediate family members beyond those covered by medical insurance. We offer 3 different types of medical financial assistance - Surgical Assistance Award ($3,000 cap), Dental Surgery Award ($1,000 cap) and Serious Medical/Life Threatening Illness (ranges).
Awards are provided to assist full-time and part-time (more than 20 hours per week) employees and their immediate family (spouse, dependents) after six months of employment. Dependent age cap is 26 years old. Applicants are required to complete an EE verification form and submit with all applications.
These programs are offered year-round. Incomplete applications will delay processing and review of your award. Please be sure to submit all required documents in order to expedite the application process.
This award provides support to address a non-life-threatening but disabling condition. You may be eligible to receive up to $3,000 in assistance to help pay for medical treatment and prescription co-pays as well as related travel expenses. Cosmetic surgeries or non-disabling conditions are not eligible.
We require that applicants submit complete applications including a medical diagnosis and prognosis from your doctor describing the medical situation in detail. We will need to know if the procedure is medically necessary and what the specific treatment plan is. We will also need to know what portion is insurance eligible and what is not.
Applications accepted year-round.
We are proud to be able to provide support for medically-necessary, urgent dental procedures. Reimbursement with original receipts. Non-urgent procedures / cosmetic procedures are not eligible.
