Free Screenings during Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month
HMAA wants to support members in staying healthy by helping with disease detection and prevention. Especially now during Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, we are promoting preventive screenings for colorectal cancer, the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the U.S. Although it is one of the deadliest forms, it can be cured if caught early. Screenings are key to early detection.
As part of our screening and prevention program, HMAA is offering a free at-home fecal immunochemical test (FIT) kit to members between ages 50 and 75 who have not had a sigmoidoscopy in the last 5 years, a colonoscopy in the last 10 years, or a FIT in the last 12 months according to our records. Eligible members may request a kit online or contact our Customer Service Center

We value your comments and would greatly appreciate your feedback. The information collected will be used to enhance our services and will be kept strictly confidential. Mahalo for helping us make health care better for our members!
Free Physician Consultations through HiDoc
Telemedicine can seem intimidating, especially after a lifetime of in-office visits. HMAA’s telemedicine service, HiDoc, is not meant to replace treatment from your primary care physician, but rather to enhance your overall care experience. Here are a few HiDoc benefits to consider.

  • Convenience. Are you tired of wasting valuable time in stop-and-go traffic or in a crowded waiting room? HiDoc reduces travel and waiting time by bringing the physician directly to your phone, computer, or mobile device.
  • Relief from Urgent Symptoms. When a fever or cough presents itself, the last thing you want to do is drag yourself out of bed, get dressed, and sit in a waiting room filled with other sick people. HiDoc enables you to speak with a physician from the comfort of your home, usually within 30 minutes of your request. HiDoc physicians can also prescribe medications if needed.
  • Access to Care. If you live far from a clinic or doctor’s office, or if you are traveling on the Mainland, HiDoc makes it easier to receive a medical consultation. Best of all, there is NO out-of-pocket cost.
