Guam - Following the public hearing on Bill 94 relative to prompt payment requirements for health care and health insurance benefits, Senator Rory Respicio has written to Guam Memorial Hospital administrator Joseph Verga on whether Calvo's SelectCare insurance owes money to the hospital.

As stated at the public hearing, SelectCare officials indicated they did not owe money to the hospital, but postings on the GMH website as required by law indicate otherwise.

As requested by Respicio, Verga tells KUAM News SelectCare owes slightly less than the $3.9 million reported online. After verifying the numbers, the insurance company owes $3.2 million.

Calvo's SelectCare's Frank Campillo clears the air, saying, "The numbers that are being presented to the people of Guam are inaccurate number one. Number two we can tell you that we are very current with our receivables that are due to the Guam Memorial Hospital."

Campillo confirms SelectCare has even advanced payments to GMH in recent months to help the hospital with meeting payroll.

The same online report shows a balance of $3.2 million owed by TakeCare, $2.2 million by Staywell, and $800,000 by Netcare.
