One of Hawaii's leading health insurers, UHA provides medical, drug, and vision plans to Hawaii employer groups. Our mission is to provide access to quality health care services while protecting our members from financial loss or injury.
We were founded in 1996, when a group of physician teachers at the University of Hawaii, John A. Burns School of Medicine, started UHA. We have been recognized consistently by Hawaii Business Magazine as one of the top 100 companies in Hawaii.
Our Vision and Values
Through our partnership with physicians and medical scientists, we envision ourselves as a force for continuously improving the quality of our members' health care.
We believe that the quality of our members' health care can be measured and improved and that it is our responsibility to do so. Guided by our physician advisors and our commitment to the ethical values of the medical profession, we work with our providers to identify areas that need improvement and develop and implement programs to assure that improvement takes place. This occurs while we strive to preserve and enhance a close and trusted relationship between our members, who are patients, and their physicians.
Our associates are our strength. It is they who have created an environment based on trust and respect and it is they who, working in teams, strive to understand and anticipate the needs and expectations of our customers whose satisfaction is our goal.
Leader in Quality and Service
Quality health care doesn't just happen. By meeting strict quality standards to ensure clinically sound decision-making that respects the rights of both patients and medical providers, UHA received accreditation in Health Utilization Management through URAC, an independent non-profit organization that promotes health care quality through accreditation and certification programs.

The quality of our customer service is something of which we are especially proud. That is why UHA retains 95% of our customers.
Leader in Wellness and Prevention
Recognizing that wellness and prevention is the cornerstone of good health, UHA helps members better their lives by bettering their health. We do this by providing benefits directed at maintaining health and preventing illness, and encouraging members to take advantage of them.
UHA was the first to offer a health plan that fully covers preventive medical services with no deductible and no co-payment. All UHA plans now cover immunizations, well-care examinations, screening tests, early detection, and disease management at 100 percent.
