Guam - The Department of Administration has written to the Attorney General's Office over continued concern over the Judiciary of Guam's group health insurance plan.

It was earlier this week when the DOA wrote to the Judiciary over concerns that Judiciary retirees would be not covered in its health insurance plan. The Judiciary responded saying they disagreed with DOA and did not believe Guam statute authorizes DOA to drop the court's retirees despite DOA's citation in the law.

DOA director Benita Manglona writes that it is DOA's opinion that the Judiciary's decision to exclude its retirees is based upon an "untenable and faulty interpretation" of Guam statute and the health insurance law. DOA further believes that it would be in direct violation of the law for the Judiciary to exclude its retired employees from its elected coverage adding that it's urgent that the legality of the Judiciary's decision be resolved before open enrollment is announced.

Manglona requests the AG call a meeting together with the Judiciary, DOA and the retirement fund to discuss the matter.
