Rodriguez: people have been wanting to choose

by Ken Quintanilla

Guam - Committee on Health chair Senator Dennis Rodriguez, Jr. says the non-exclusive health insurance option for GovGuam is something the people have been asking for. "However, understand that having our people, our employees, our retirees, be able to choose who they wish to have them insured is also something goo. It's actually a desire of the legislature to give that choice to the people, so by the governor choosing that route, the people will have that choice on who will cover them."

Rodriguez, who is a non-voting member of the health insurance negotiating team however says had the exclusive option been selected, it would have seen a more significant amount of savings. He adds both the exclusive and non-exclusive options would save more versus what GovGuam is paying today. It was last month when Senator Rodriguez's option conducted a survey for GovGuam employees asking for their input on the process- which showed people want a choice.
