Includes the reduction of approximately 25 positions throughout the organisation, including management and executive staff
Clear One Health Plans has declared the implementation of a staff reduction plan to address weak market conditions resulting in decreases in membership, health care reforms that call for greater efficiency in administration.
Patricia Gibford, president and chief executive officer of Clear One Health Plans, said: Due to the effects of the current depressed economy and resulting decreases in membership, the company must realign our workforce and further streamline our operations. This staff reduction plan, while difficult, is the most effective means to improving operational efficiency and will assist the company in maintaining its financial strength.
The plan includes the reduction of approximately 25 positions throughout the organisation, including management and executive staff. The majority of the impacted positions are non-customer service roles. The company expects staff reductions to be completed by December 31, 2009.
Clear One Health Plans provides health insurance, including medicare advantage plans, commercial plans, individual plans and administrative services to individuals and businesses throughout the West.
