MEDICAID OUTLOOK

Hawaii is expanding its Medicaid program to cover households with incomes up to 138% of the federal poverty level. See the below chart for qualifying income levels, as a percentage of the federal poverty level. Note that qualifying incomes vary based on family size.

Infants: 0-1 Children: 1-5 Children: 6-19 Parents Upper Limit

Hawaii is very interesting – With a Median Income Rank of 6, and many people to a house (ranking 2nd), Hawaii certainly isn’t going anywhere. Hawaii’s current growth ranks at 18, while its projected growth moves up to 8. So despite the saturation among dentists and specialists, Hawaii still remains a viable spot to own a dental practice.
