Federal health takeover threatens Hawaii budget

Hawaii’s Congressional delegation is committed to
a massive reorganization of health insurance by the federal government.
This mission is about to collide with state budgets, causing much
collateral damage.

people remain unaware that health-insurance premiums contribute to
states’ tax revenues. On average, states tax private health insurance 2
percent of premiums. If a policy for a family costs $13,000, for
example, the state rakes in $260 off the top. The looming federal
takeover threatens these revenues in Hawaii.
