Hawaii Medicare Supplement Plans
Hawaii became the 50th state of the United States in 1898. It has a population of 1.5 million with seniors age 65 and older making up 17% of its population. Hawaii’s senior population is growing four times faster than the state as whole. Coronary heart disease, followed by stroke, is the leading cause of death among seniors in Hawaii. Seniors begin looking for Medigap insurance to help pay for additional costs not covered by Medicare.
