Guam - The Guam Education Policy Board raised concerns about the new Government of Guam health care plan during its recent meeting. Chairman Ron Ayuyu says they are not certain if the Department Of Education's $183 million budget for Fiscal Year 2011 will be enough to cover any additional costs for insurance.
The board has scheduled a special meeting for October 8 at 6pm at the DOE Conference Room in Hagatna to discuss this concern.
Ayuyu adds that if the changes to the health plan show major impacts, then he says doe will be making a request for more funds from the Guam Legislature. "We want to see what's the impact also and the total cost within our budget," Ayuyu commented. "We want to make sure that everything runs smooth for DOE in the finance section area."
