Why are some Hawaii islands raising prices?

Posted February 06, 2019 04:11:49The islands of Maui, Lanai and Kauai are all set to raise prices for families on February 8 as the nation braces for an ice storm.

The price hike will bring the cost of a standard meal to $11.50 per person, a hike of 3 per cent over the past six months.

There will be no increase on children under six and people who have not yet had their first child will see their prices increase.

A spokesperson for Hawaii Health told The Irish News that the price hike was aimed at encouraging families to prepare for the upcoming holiday season.

“In the wake of the cold snap that we experienced, we have decided to hike prices for all of our families, including those who are making the most of their time off,” the spokesperson said.

“This is in keeping with our policy of increasing prices to help families save money during this time.”

The spokesperson added that the decision to hike the price was a result of the fact that most families were spending less than they did during the peak summer months.

“When families are in the market, we are also looking at how families can better manage their spending and we are going to be working with our suppliers to see if we can come up with some more ideas to help reduce the costs of this winter,” the statement read.

The spokesperson said the price increases would take effect from 2pm on February 11.

The cost of the standard meal is now $10.50 for a family of four, up from $8.50 last year.

The spokesman said that the cost would rise to $15 for a four-person family.

Kauai also raised its prices by an extra $1 for a three-person meal.

An extra $5.25 is charged for children under four, and an extra 2.5 per cent for people over 50.

The cost increases will be implemented in the same manner as the cost hikes on all other items.

People are advised to check their local health department for details of how to increase their spending, including what to do if their household budget is not up to par.

Health Minister Jonathan Elkins said in a statement that the move was in line with the Government’s commitment to reducing the impact of the severe winter weather on the island of Hawaii.

“The price increase is meant to encourage families to spend more money in order to get a quality holiday, and is part of a number of measures to help Hawaii cope with this difficult time,” the minister said.

“Our focus has always been to ensure that families can make the most out of the holidays.

This increase will help families who are preparing for the holidays, who are looking to save money and who are trying to get ahead during this critical time.”

Ireland to introduce mandatory family doctor, nurse as part of national programme

MEDIA REPRESENTATION: A woman reads out the names of people she’s met in the past month in a mobile clinic as part a national programme, on the island of Ireland.

The programme is called “Family Medicine” and will be rolled out across the country from April.

The first patients to sign up will receive free medication.

In Dublin, Dr Daniel Máire has been running a family medicine clinic for more than a decade.

“I am very proud of what I have achieved, because I have a patient base of almost 50,000 people, and I see that number increase every month,” he said.

The first patients who sign up for the program will receive one month’s free treatment.

Dr Máir said the aim is to have as many families as possible using family medicine.

“The family medicine is not about a clinic, it is about the health of the family and the wellbeing of the children and the elderly,” he added.

Ireland is one of the few developed countries that does not require a family doctor.

Dr Mírthain Maughan, from the Institute of Family Medicine at the University of Limerick, said the first families to sign-up for the programme will receive a six-week course.

He said that the family medicine programme is a response to the growing number of people seeking a medical professional.

“It is important that we keep the existing family medicine population healthy and healthy people in the country,” he explained.

This is what Dr Máair said is behind the new national programme.

A spokeswoman for the Health Service Executive said the Government is committed to providing high-quality family medicine and that the new programme is part of this commitment.

“As part of the National Family Care and Carers Plan, the Government will introduce mandatory National Family Medicine, in a phased manner, to increase the proportion of families who are getting free treatment,” the spokeswoman said.
