Abstract:

This is the second in a series of reports regarding the adequacy of medical plans related to the realignment of Service members and their families to Guam. Our objective was to evaluate the methodology used to determine the number and type of medical staff needed and the plan for providing specialty care to eligible beneficiaries in Guam. Specifically, given the expected population increases resulting from the realignment in Guam, we determined whether the methodology and plan ensure that eligible beneficiaries have adequate access to care. See the appendix for a discussion of the scope and methodology related to the objective.
