Aloha, Friends!
Our wonderful island is focusing on keeping safe during the Coronavirus outbreak. COVID-19 is impacting many of our local businesses, including KONAWEB, but we are happy to be onboard with the required preventive measures. We will not be charging our advertisers until personal movement and travel are deemed safe.
We know that many of you are "addicted" to the KONAWEB live webcam at Kailua Bay, and use the Big Island Forum for current info. We will keep them up and running for you! The popular Big Island Calendar of Events will be on hold through June, at least.
Keep Hawai'i in your hearts, and we will LOVE to see you when the time is right!   -Konabob and Shirley
Those of you who are in a position to do so, may to help keep KONAWEB online.

In response to 143815: Kaiser or HMSA? (Kona/Kealakekua), posted by Steve KB on Thursday, 27 February 2020, at 9:17 a.m.

We travel a lot on business. Having insurance that travels is a must. We have carried insurance thru premera/blue cross for two decades. It's good everywhere on the mainland and Alaska. Six years ago I had surgery in Seattle. The final bill was $356,000. We paid $0. I shopped the surgery in Ohio, Mass., Minnesota and Washington. I chose Seattle because of the transparency rating of Swedish in Seattle. At our age we also consider life flight coverage a good option.
