Another price of paradise (there are so many!)

That's very true. Flying and housing specialists to the out islands for regular consult days, and flying patents to Oahu for surgical procedures, CAT scans, etc. does cost money built into the premiums.
This is the same for the other Medicare Advantage programs covering the Big Island. Friends on HSMA tell me their rates are about the same.
Another "price of paradise" that must be considered when thinking of retiring on the Big Island, along with the highest gas and electricity rates in the nation, plus other costs which may or may not apply in any given situation.
