Guam - After being informed that their protest has been denied by the Department of Administration, Aetna International spokesperson Cynthia Michener tells KUAM News that they will abide by the decision that was made. Michener responded to our inquiries about the protest and DOA's response and stated, "We appreciate the government's thorough and fair response and will abide by its decision."

Moylans Netcare Life and Health Insurance Plan Administrator Jerry Crisostomo meanwhile said he preferred not to comment at this time and said Aetna International is reviewing its options and will provide a response to DOA's decision at the appropriate time. DOA acting director Benita Manglona denied the protest after a review by DOA and the Attorney General's Office found no evidence of illegal or improper bias in the evaluation process that led to the selection of Calvo's SelectCare to begin negotiations for the Fiscal Year 2012 Group Health Insurance Program.

Manglona did not return calls for comment on whether negotiations will resume or whether DOA will wait for Aetna to file an appeal of the decision.
