New Healthcare.gov Contractor Causing Hospital Employees to Go Unpaid for Weeks

Novitas Solutions is a health-sector systems provider that was awarded a $12 million dollar, no-bid contact in August to build the payment systems for Healthcare.gov.

HOUSTON (KTRK) — Dozens of employees at a hospital in northeast Houston have had to make it through the holidays without getting paid for weeks. The CEO of Saint Anthony’s Hospital on Little York is blaming a new Medicare payment contractor for his payroll problems. Nearly 150 employees, ranging from doctors to nurses and administrators, haven’t been paid in nearly a month, and the CEO says it’s not his fault. For the neighbors around St. Anthony’S Hospital, the care has been convenient.
