GMH leaders still reviewing proposed fee increases

Guam - In an effort to correct their long history of not charging enough, it was last month the Guam Memorial Hospital held a public hearing on proposed fee increases to all services.

Taking into consideration all the comments, especially from local insurance companies, GMH administrator Joseph Verga tells KUAM it's back to the drawing board as he and chief financial officer Alan Ulrich are going back to review the numbers.

As we previously reported, insurance companies opposed fee increases to all services, saying it was too much too fast as the increased fees would trickle down and hurt insured clients the most.

Until they've made the necessary changes, the fee-setting methodology has yet to be presented before the GMH board of trustees.
