Guam - Health insurance negotiations will resume after Aetna and local provider Moylan's Insurance informed the Department of Administration that they do not intend to appeal the government's denial of their protest. Aetna International told KUAM News on Wednesday they appreciated the thorough and fair response to its protest and they would accept DOA's decision denying their protest.
That decision was made official today when Aetna legal counsel Joyce Tang informed the Attorney General's Office of their decision. This means the protest has been resolved and negotiations with Calvo's SelectCare and the contracting process will resume as soon as possible.
Officials are hoping to have a new contract in place for thousands of GovGuam workers and retirees before the start of the new fiscal year.
