Guam - We should see some movement this week on the impasse between the Guam Memorial Hospital and TakeCare Insurance. The two entities have been in discussions for several weeks now after the hospital's Board of Trustees in January voted to terminate its direct payer agreement with TakeCare.

Acting GMH administrator Rey Vega said, "We believe that we should be able to bring closure to this issue with some discussion points I should be briefing the board at the next scheduled meeting."

According to Legislative Healthcare Committee chairman Senator Dennis Rodrguez Jr., who mediated a meeting between the two entities last week, several compromises were reached. Rodriguez via a press release stated GMH management agreed to recommend to the board to reinstate TakeCare's insurance agreement with the hospital.

The board is scheduled to meet on Thursday, February 23.
