Billion Dollar Obamacare Contractor Processed Only 5% of Applications – Played Hangman Instead (Video)
The company was paid by the government to process paper applications of those signing up for Obamacare. But, employees were just sitting at their desk most of the day.
A former employee admitted that sometimes the employees played Trivia Pursuit, Hangman, Wheel of Fortune, games like that.
The Obamacare contractor processed less than 5 percent of applications.
After months of waiting, the Federal government responded to News 4’s request for information on an Affordable Care Act application processing center in Wentzville, Missouri.
In May 2014, employees at the Wentzville facility run by Serco complained to News 4 that they were sitting around with no work to do.
One employee told News 4 they passed the time by playing “Pictionary on a dry erase board. We played 20 questions.”
Employees at the plants in Kentucky and Arkansas, also hired to process the paper applications for the ACA, made the same claims…
…According to CMS records, from October 2013 through March of 2014, Serco processed 271,341 paper applications. That’s less than 5% of the anticipated workload.
