In response to 140730: Living in s kona and medical, posted by Jim L3 on Sunday, 12 March 2017, at 6:27 a.m.

I live in Captain Cook and am a Kaiser member. You could be a member if you live down here.

They do have zipcodes which determine eligibility. I wonder how they would know that you lived in Kau if you had a Kona zip code?

From a Kaiser document:

Service Area
To enroll in this Plan, you must live or work in our service area. This is where our providers practice. Our service area is:
• The Islands of Oahu, Kauai, Maui, Molokai, and Lanai.
• The Island of Hawaii (except zip codes 96718, 96772, and 96777).

96718 is Hawaii National Park and census says there are 18 businesses there and no residences.

96772 is Naalehu and Discovery Harbor (perhaps because there is a small clinic near there and don't want to put it out of business?)

96777 is Pahala (same reason as Naalehu?)
