Schuylkill County Credited for Overpayment of Healthcare.
 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.
 
A group of former Rest Haven business office employees that were laid off onJuly 1st, 2012 were still present on the County’s rolls until October of 2012.These employees were rehired by SAM Inc, when SAM was contracted to runRest Haven, the County’s nursing home.
 
A former County Commissioner was included twice with both a double last nameand her single married name.
 
 
“What was most shocking is that we found someone on the rolls who was neveran employee of Schuylkill County,” expressed Joy.Schuylkill County’s Blue Cross and Blue Shield is about $950,000 a month or$11,500,000 annually. “I applaud the Board of Commissioners for their understandingthat with rising Healthcare costs, every penny counts,” said Joy. “This is a teamaccomplishment. I would like to thank my staff, Human Resources, Administration andthe Board for working together to make sure this is right.”“Communication is key. With changes made by the new Board, people are both talkingand listening. We are getting it done together.”“I campaigned on a platform that as an Elected Official that I work for the People of Schuylkill County. I report to them,” said Joy.
