GMH trustees will continue debate Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Guam Memorial Hospital's Board of Trustees are scheduled to continue discussions this Tuesday on a number of issues that were tabled during last week's meeting including whether they will rescind the termination of a direct payer agreement with TakeCare Insurance. The board met in executive session last Thursday, but didn't disclose any details on their discussions. 

GMH management came out swinging last week, refuting a massive marketing campaign by the insurance carrier. GMH Chief Financial Officer Siva Karuppan said TakeCare has been paying $0.50 on the dollar for bills and has been one of the worst payers to GMH. TakeCare has claimed otherwise.

The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday at 6pm.
