Congressman, Governor working to get Medicaid extension for Guam
Each in their own way.
Governor Lou Leon Guerrero and Congressman Michael San Nicolas are working to extend beyond November the Medicaid funding Guam desperately needs.
The governor today announced a victory in that effort, saying that a revised interpretation of the continuing budget resolution recently passed by Congress will provide Guam access to $42 million in Medicaid funding through Nov. 21, not the $100,000 originally expected.
And there will not be a need to find matching funds locally because the reimbursement will be 100 percent.
The longer-term solution is finding funding after Nov. 21.
