More Trouble at Putnam County Memorial Hospital

More trouble for Putnam County Memorial Hospital.

Employees at the hospital say their health insurance claims are being denied. It appears that hospital’s third-party insurance administrator cancelled hospital employee plans last month. Employees say no notice was given. The Hospital board President says plans were cancelled briefly because of unmade payments, but that a payment was made, and coverage for employees should have resumed. He says any claims that were denied, can be resubmitted. The hospital recently laid off 20 employees and is reportedly dealing with millions of dollars in debt.
