  • Number of in the above beneficiaries whose coverage included prescription drug benefits (Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plans): 108,148
  • Total number of Hawaii residents enrolled in Medicare: 242,552

Private insurance companies must have contracts with Medicare to offer Medicare Advantage plans and Medicare Prescription Drug Plans. Depending on the terms of the contract between the plan and Medicare, not every plan is available statewide or in all service areas. Each year, the plan must renew its contract with Medicare, so the availability of a plan in a specific service area is subject to change.
