Major share of Mercy job cuts in Joplin could come from billing department

If Mercy Hospital handles its cuts in Joplin in the same fashion it has done in Springfield, many of the cuts will come from the billing department.

Nearly the entire department was eliminated in Springfield, according to KY3. The work will be outsourced to Xtend Healthcare Solutions in Nashville.

Most of the other cuts reportedly will come from administrative positions.

Springfield Business Journal reports Mercy laid off 127 in that community.

So nobody is paying their medical bills because they can't afford it, because they are too dam high, so fire the employees. Does that mean that bills will go down and people will pay them? Fat Chance.
