Item 1.01.
Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
 
On October 31, 2019, Triple-S Salud, Inc., a Puerto Rico insurance company (“Triple-S”) and managed care subsidiary of Triple-S Management Corporation (the “Company”), amended its contract (the “Amendment”) with the Puerto Rico Health Insurance Administration (“ASES,” by its Spanish acronym) for the offering of health care services for the Medicaid and Child Health Insurance subscribers for the Government of Puerto Rico’s revised Medicaid health insurance program (the “Contract”). The Company announced the entry into the Contract under Item 1.01 of a Current Report on Form 8-K dated September 27, 2018.
 
The Amendment, among other things, maintains the current per member per month payments made by ASES to Triple-S under the Contract for fifteen (15) days following the expiration of the prior rating period, which ended on October 31, 2019, to allow the parties additional time to complete their ongoing revision of the per member per month payments for the new rating period, which runs from November 1, 2019 until June 30, 2020, as per the Amendment.  Once an agreement is reached, the updated per member per month payments will be effective as of November 1, 2019, as if they had been agreed to upon the expiration of the prior rating period.
 
The foregoing summary of the terms and conditions of the Amendment is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the full text of the Amendment which will be filed with the Company’s next periodic filing under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
