GovGuam health insurance roundtable held

Guam - Lawmakers held a roundtable hearing this morning on GovGuam's group health insurance program. Deputy attorney general John Weisenberger, who has represented the negotiating team for the last four years, says the RFP for the contract should be published earlier in the year.

"I will say the team has always wanted it to start sooner, the reality is that by the time planning and development work is done, it's later. It would be better if there was going to be an amendment in the law that the earlier the sooner the better that the Attorney General's Office can advise the negotiating team the changes whatever they may be," he said.

Oversight chair Vice Speaker BJ Cruz says the goal was to understand the process of negotiations and whether existing law should be clarified to promote increased competition and lower the cost to taxpayers.
