Guam - $180 million that is how much is owed to the hospital by self-pay patients and according to the hospital's chief financial officer if you have not made arrangements to clear your debt any tax refund you may receive may be garnished.

"Its one of the collection opportunities that GMH has available to it so what we are doing then is to forward accounts for the guarantors of the receivables to DRT," he said.

The entire amount due to GMH will be garnished from the income tax refund. Ulrich says they are looking to send a list of those with receivables to the Department of Revenue & Taxation monthly. He adds that GMH is finalizing negotiation with a collection agency to collect money owed to the hospital.
