Guam - The amnesty period may be over, but starting July, the Guam Memorial Hospital will continue efforts to help patients pay down their dues. GMH chief financial officer Alan Ulrich tells KUAM GovGuam employees may opt to participate in a voluntary payroll deduction program. Rather than the employee writing a check to GMH, the employee may authorize for an amount to come out of the paycheck.
Ulrich reports an estimated 4,000 GovGuam employees owing $6 million to the hospital that could take advantage of this program. He notes the importance of getting patients to pay off their longstanding obligations because funds received go directly towards paying off GMH vendors.
