HMSA files Q1 financials

HMSA’s work with providers, businesses, government agencies, and the community to improve the health of its members, combined with the suspension of Affordable Care Act (ACA) fees and taxes by the federal government, led to a 4.8% net gain for HMSA for the first three months of the year. The health insurer filed its financial results with the state Insurance Division earlier this week.

“Our financial stability allows us to work with every stakeholder in the health care system to improve the lives of our members and the health of Hawaii,” said Gina L. Marting, HMSA senior vice president and chief financial officer.

HMSA collected $889.6 million in premium revenue for the first quarter. The health insurer paid $777.8 million for its members’ medical and hospital benefits and $81.1 million for administrative expenses. HMSA reported an investment gain of $8.6 million.
