Health insurance negotiations stymied

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - Health insurance negotiations for the coming fiscal year have come to a standstill due to a protest being filed by one of the three companies that responded to the request for proposal. The Attorney General's Office would not provide specifics about the protest that was filed by Aetna Moylan's. 

In a statement issued today, the AG's Office would only say that the procurement had involved negotiations with the highest ranked offeror, but one week ago a protest was filed and under the law - all proceedings are stayed until the protest is resolved by the Government of Guam.

The healthcare negotiation team met at the beginning of the month to review the offers submitted by Calvo's Selectcare, Staywell and Moylan's. Department of Administration director Benita Manglona was advised not to make any comments about the procurement but did say that officials had hoped to complete negotiations and submit a contract to the attorney general and the governor for approval by the end of this month. 

The AG's Office could not say when the protest would be resolved.
