The rate of people without health insurance has dropped below six percent since the implementation of the Hawaii Health Connector, according to the state insurance commissioner.
State officials held a briefing on the program Monday and say the rate is down from about 8 percent from 2013.
With the increase of coverage, 75,000 people in Hawaii are still without insurance. Lawmakers are concerned about how the troubled exchange will continue since it can't financially sustain itself.
Interim Executive Director Tom Matsuda says the state is still figuring out how to operate on a much smaller budget.
