Guam - The Government of Guam's health insurance contract with Calvo's Selectcare is closer to getting signed. Department of Administration Director Benita Manglona hopes to have it inked by the end of this week. She says the holdup is due to a member of the negotiation team requesting for more time to ensure all that was discussed during the negotiation stage was incorporated into the contract.

Manglona says the request was reasonable and wants all comments put in before the contract is finalized.

Meanwhile, in the Speaker's Weekly Address, Senator Ben Pangelinan said GovGuam successfully negotiated an $11 million decrease in the current health insurance contract, adding its $11 million that can now be used elsewhere.
