Guam - If you owe the Guam Memorial Hospital money, today was your last day to take advantage of the amnesty period.

The program, which launched in April, gives a 50% discount for uninsured self-pay patients.

GMH chief financial officer Alan Ulrich says $290,000 was collected by the first week of June with GMH cashiers reporting $31,000 collected last Friday alone.

Ulrich says this is positive news as residents are helping to pay down the over $100 million owed from uninsured patients.

If you're insured but hoping to nab a discount, Ulrich says this could be a program in the future as $10 million is owed from this pool of patients.
