Howard Business Report - HMSA and Kaiser

(HawaiiNewsNow) - It's a good bill of financial health for HMSA, which covers 688,625 Hawaii residents. In the April to June quarter, dues revenue was 518 million and spending was 517 million.  Leftover was a little under $700,000, side investments generated another 4 million.

The 2nd largest local health insurer is Kaiser, which had 266 million quarterly revenue.  Expenses came within about a million of that, so Kaiser's in the black, too.

If the rest of the year is like this, it could mean smaller rate increases to come.
