Guam - The 3 appeals filed by island health insurers over last year procurement of the 2013 GovGuam health plan have all been dismissed in a stipulated order signed by the attorneys for all 3 insurers.
The stipulated order was released Monday by the OPA. It means that SelectCare will remain the GovGuam health insurance provider for the remainder of this fiscal year.
In the order, signed last Monday, SelectCare, TakeCare and StayWell all stipulated that because the fiscal year is nearly half over, "SelectCare, TakeCare, Island Home and DOA have together determined that no matter which party prevails ... it is no longer economically feasible for any health insurance provider to enter into a new Fiscal Year 2013 contract with GovGuam."
SelectCare Administrator Frank Campillo told PNC News "It became apparent to all parties involved that it was not longer economical to pursue this issue any further. The OPA decision is reasonable and meets the desire of all the parties involved in the appeal."
Last year, negotiations to select a new health care provider for GovGuam employees collapsed amidst protests filed by the 3 insurers who protested the RFP process. The solicitation was cancelled and SelectCare, the previous contract provider, was allowed to continue providing services.
