Date:1/15/2009

New statewide Online Care service available to all Hawaii residents.

HONOLULU, Jan. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The Hawaii Medical Service Association (HMSA) today announced the launch of its new Online Care service that connects patients and physicians via the Internet or telephone. HMSA's Online Care is now available to everyone in Hawaii and may be accessed by visiting hmsa.com. Residents do not have to be an HMSA member to use the service.

"HMSA's Online Care takes health care access to a whole new level, and we're proud that HMSA is the first health plan in the nation to provide its residents with such a revolutionary service," said HMSA President and Chief Executive Officer Robert P. Hiam. "In the weeks and months ahead, we expect many families in our community to experience the ease, convenience and affordability of HMSA's Online Care."

Online Care is aimed at improving access to care throughout the Islands, especially in Hawaii's rural areas. Residents can speak with a local physician from HMSA's network of credentialed participating physicians whenever they need to. Online Care is available anytime, including after business hours, on holidays and weekends. Online sessions are affordable, quick, secure and private. HMSA members can speak with a physician online for only $10. Nonmembers may use HMSA's Online Care for $45 per session.

"HMSA's Online Care is making Hawaii's health care system more accessible to patients by overcoming the constraints of time, distance, mobility, or lack of insurance," said HMSA Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Michael A. Gold. "Our state is an island community with many rural areas, and HMSA's Online Care will help improve access by connecting patients in those areas to physicians statewide."
