Statement from Governor Abercrombie - Hawaii News Now - KGMB and KHNL

Statement from Governor Abercrombie

"Here in Hawai'i, we already have our Prepaid Health Care Act, which enables a vast majority of our residents to be insured.  The U.S. Supreme Court's decision supports President Obama's initiative to make healthcare availability a national policy.

"In the days ahead you will continue to hear political discussion over health care plans.  What is most important for Hawai'i to know is that your State government will continue to support a healthcare system that ensures high quality, safety and sustainable costs.  The Affordable Care Act is our ally in this effort.

"Since appointing my Healthcare Transformation Coordinator, Beth Giesting, my Administration has and continues to work in partnership with the private sector – consumers, providers and insurers - to make sure the State of Hawai'i has that high quality healthcare system."
