Some employees at Schumacher Group were given notice today they no longer have a job. In a letter given to KATC by a Schumacher employee, the company says it is getting rid of its Patient Financial Management Services division.
In the letter, Vice President of Human Resources Diane Broussard says dissolving the division is "essential due to a reorganization of the company's Revenue Cycle Services, as well as overall underperformance of the cost center."
The letter, dated May 1, informs employees that their positions have been eliminated effective May 1. Schumacher will continue paying employees their regular base pay through May 31.
"Schumacher Group understands that this may be a difficult transition and has made arrangements to provide counseling services," the letter states. Laid-off employees can use the service up to 18 months.
We're trying to get in touch with Schumacher Group for comment.
