HMAA offers the following health plan options to small businesses that contract with our partnered Professional Employer Organization (PEO) firms for employee benefits, as well as through our Association Health Plan partners. The State of Hawaii group size definitions are as follows:
- Small Group: 1 to 50 full-time equivalent employees (FTEs)
- Large Group: 51 or more FTEs
Group size is determined as follows:
- Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), an FTE is an employee who worked at least 30 hours per week during the preceding calendar year, and part-time employees are included in the calculation. Example: 3 employees each working 20 hours per week = 2 FTEs.
- Companies with a common owner or are otherwise related are generally combined and treated as a single group, and employees are combined for purposes of determining group size.
- Option Plus One (OP1) – HMAA’s most popular medical plan. This plan helps attract and retain employees with benefits including low out-of-pocket maximums, Chiropractic Care, Acupuncture, Naturopathic, Wellness and Preventive Care, and Employee Assistance Programs.
- Option Plus Two (OP2) – HMAA’s most comparable plan to Hawaii’s largest Preferred Provider Plan (PPP), with added benefits that include Chiropractic Care, Acupuncture, Naturopathic, Wellness and Preventive Care, and Employee Assistance Programs.
- Comprehensive Plus – A lower-cost alternative to OP1 and OP2, this plan offers fixed copayments for office visits and minimal copayments for preventive benefits. In addition, Comprehensive Plus includes Chiropractic, Acupuncture, Naturopathic, Wellness and Preventive Care, and Employee Assistance Programs.
