ObamaCare Center Hired 600 Employees to Process 2 Applications a Month

Last year there was good news in Wentzville.

The healthcare plan that’s divided the nation is bringing 600 jobs to Wentzville.

Serco, a government contractor, is expected to lease the U.S. Fidelis Call Center on Mall Parkway and open a processing center to handle applications for health insurance under the new Affordable Care Act.

A Serco representative said the company was contracted by the Department of Health and Human Services to process federal applications of health insurance exchanges. The Wentzville is one of three Serco is opening.

The positions start at $12 an hour and include benefits.

And best of all the work is incredibly easy.

News 4 dug for answers after finding out workers in Wentzville are being paid do nothing at a facility where they are supposed to be processing paper applications of those signing up for insurance under the Affordable Care Act.

“The main thing is that the data entry side does not have hardly any work to do. They’re told to sit at their computers and hit the refresh button every ten minutes. No more than every ten minutes. They’re monitored. To hopefully look for an application. They’re [sic] goals are set to process two applications per month and some people are not even able to do that.”

This appears to be one of three Serco ObamaCare paperwork facilities. The total contract for Serco’s ObamaCare gig was $1.2 billion. So we can assume that this branch soaked up a few hundred million.

Serco is a British company. Its US branch gets 90 percent of its business from the government. And it was notorious for overcharging the government.

In response to criticism, Obama Inc. defended the $1.2 billion contract.

“Serco is a highly skilled company that has a proven track record in providing cost-effective services to numerous other (U.S.) federal agencies,” said Brian Cook, a spokesman for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, the HHS agency overseeing implementation of the exchanges.

Two applications a month. Doesn’t get more cost effective than that.
