After 23-year-old hiker Wade Johnson disappeared into the misty, fern-choked wilderness of the Koolau mountains, rescuers searched the jagged ridges by helicopter and on foot. They set off full of hope. In the end, three men made the ultimate sacrifice. Enveloped in swirling clouds, their fire department helicopter crashed and burned, killing the pilot and two police officers. Each man left behind a young family. Johnson, a college student, was never found.

More than 20 years ago, when this young island-state set out to provide health insurance to all its 1.1 million citizens, lawmakers faced two tough alternatives. One was to simply expand Medicaid eligibility to the 17% of the population that had no coverage.
