According to Maura Nelson, Shumacher Group Vice Pres. of Marketing and Communications, Medicare changes caused duplication of work between the laid-off division and existing Shumacher employees.
Nelson released this statement:
"As a result of the changing healthcare environment, Schumacher Group is adjusting and adapting its business strategy accordingly. The constriction of our local medical billing division and the related layoffs represent 2 percent of our total current workforce. This change is necessary so we may remain more focused on our primary mission -- treating the 4 million+ patients a year we serve with exceptional medical care."
