TakeCare Announces New Options for Radiology and Imaging Services

Tamuning,GU — Effective March 10, 2012, TakeCare Insurance Company has announced it will continue, on an out-of-network basis, to support patients and their primary care doctors when they choose radiology services at Guam Radiology Consultants (GRC). Additionally, TakeCare has extended a policy-covered Airfare Benefit to all its members, making it easier for patients to travel to the Joint Commission-accredited St. Luke’s Hospital in Manila where they’ll have 100 percent covered access to a more complete suite of world-class radiology services. The Airfare Benefit, now extended to all members, includes roundtrip transportation and three days lodging in Manila.
GRC is just one of several providers of radiology services in the TakeCare network. TakeCare members continue to have access to a full range of radiology services through its on-island and off-island provider network. The company provides access to radiology services through the FHP Radiology Center and the MDX Imaging Center on Guam, as well as Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Angeles, St. Luke’s Hospital in Manila, Bumrungrad in Thailand, and several others.

FHP Radiology Center, where the CT-scan services are the first and only services on Guam to be accredited by the American College of Radiology, continues to expand its facilities.

“We at TakeCare stand by our commitment to support our patients and their primary care doctors by enabling them to seek care at the specialty providers of their choice,” Larsen said. “As GRC is now an out-of-network provider, TakeCare has put definitive measures and procedures in place to ensure qualified patient expenses for GRC services will be reimbursed on an out-of-network basis.”

Regardless of payer status, GRC maintains a policy of being a center where “no patient is turned away.”

TakeCare Insurance Company based in Guam, U.S. A., offers health plans of optimal choice and easy access to the providers consumers want. TakeCare’s health plans adequately cover its 30,000-plus members’ needs at a competitive price with exceptional, member-patient focused services.
