Medicaid in Hawaii:
The HI Department of Human Services administers the state’s Medicaid program, called Med-QUEST.
Providers must enroll in the Medicaid fee-for-service program to receive payments for covered services. Information about enrolling in the Medicaid fee-for-service program can be found at: http://www.med-quest.us/.
Medicaid website provides information about services covered by fee-for-service payments and payment amounts: http://www.med-quest.us/
In order to retain access to all Medicaid patients in the state, providers must also connect to the managed care plans individually.
Medicaid Managed Care:
Some managed care plans cover individual Hawaii counties and independent cities. The Medicaid website has jurisdictional information: http://www.med-quest.us/.
Med-QUEST Beneficiaries Participating in Managed Care:
Managed care plans participating in the QUEST Program offer detailed information about covered benefits for individuals enrolling in their plans. This information is available on the managed care websites shown below.
The state Medicaid office is primarily responsible for examining and addressing issues with the Medicaid Managed Care plans offered in the state, and for working with the companies that offer them. If you are experiencing problems as a medical provider

Additionally, if you are experiencing these or other problems, please report these problems to AAHIVM
