After an audit of the Healthcare rolls by Schuylkill County Controller Christy Joy CPA,Schuylkill County was credited $74,545.23 for monthly Healthcare Premiums.Prior to his administration, the Controller’s Office processed the payment for Healthcareusing only the cover letter. Controller Joy requested that the Board of Commissionersforward the detail of the Healthcare Rolls for review. “We make sure that we get whatwe pay for,” said Joy. Statistical sampling uncovered a deceased retiree from 2008 thatwas still included on the rolls. This finding caused a total review of the listing whichresulted in more questioned costs:
Another retiree had been deceased over a year.
