Guam - The Government of Guam's health insurance negotiating team continues to review proposals that were submitted by local insurance companies, Calvo's SelectCare, Netcare and Staywell, all vying to get the Fiscal Year 2012 health insurance contract for GovGuam employees and retirees. Department of Administration Director Benita Manglona had previously indicated that negotiations would begin Monday, July 11, but she has since been advised by the Attorney General's Office that is overseeing the process that she cannot disclose any information.
Manglona would confirm that the goal is to have a contract finalized before the end of the month for the attorney general and governor's approval.
