Highly paid firm doing same work as workers at Miami-based Jackson Health System

Miami Herald, May 3, 2010

A team of employees at Miami-based Jackson Health System processes crucial Medicaid applications while an outside firm earns millions doing the same work, according to a former group supervisor, whose story is backed up by a Medicaid official. The outside firm, Chamberlin Edmonds and Associates of Atlanta, has received $4.8 million for work on a contract approved in November 2008. Last Monday, Jackson's governing board approved a new one-year contract for an estimated $8.3 million, based on how much money CEA brings into Jackson Health System, the Miami Herald reports.
