TakeCare, GRMC sign in-network provider agreement
Eligible commercial/private sector and federal TakeCare Insurance members will now have access to covered and approved services under their TakeCare in-network/participating benefits at the Guam Regional Medical City. The agreement was effective May 21. Under the agreement, TakeCare’s eligible members may access GRMC’s full range of medical services that include cardiology, oncology/hematology, hyperbaric wound care, neurology, orthopedics, pulmonology, infectious disease, and other services such as, but not limited to, radiology, patient education, physical therapy, rehabilitation and emergency room. “We are constantly reviewing the provider network we offer our members,” said Arvin Lojo, health plan administrator. “This is an example of our commitment to expand our network of providers in Guam by adding GRMC, and throughout the mainland where we recently added PIH Health Systems in California.” In February 2021, TakeCare and GRMC signed an agreement to allow eligible TakeCare members to access GRMC’s services for the duration of the public health emergency. This new agreement replaces the February agreement.
“This agreement with the Guam Regional Medical City enables TakeCare to provide more quality choices of medical services to our members in Guam,” said George Chiu, TakeCare president and chief executive officer. “GRMC’s core philosophy, “Patients Are Partners,” compliments TakeCare’s mission to empower our members with healthcare plans and solutions that work for them.” “GRMC is pleased to be an in-network provider for TakeCare members and we greatly appreciate George Chiu’s leadership and willingness to provide TakeCare’s insured population with access to the quality healthcare that we provide,” said Dr. Michael Cruz, GRMC president & CEO.
