The Department of Health and Senior Services says it’s beginning to cut ties with SynCare. In a statement, director Margaret Donnelly says it is clear that the company is not able to meet the terms of their contract.
This comes after the House Interim Committee on Budget Transparency told the committee to find a solution to the failure of SynCare to handle the call volume and case load it was contracted to do. In a statement, committee chair Ryan Silvey says he’s happy the department is taking steps to save tax payers money. He added that the department is now responsible to make up for the money lost in paying SynCare for work it didn’t do. SynCare has been billing the state at 50 percent of its contracted rate for the last three months because of its inability to fulfill the contract.
