All-States Medical Supply’s staff in Fletcher is more than doubling in size in the next two months to meet the demands of a recently awarded Medicare contract.
Medicare just released their list of only eighteen contract suppliers who won the bids for the national mail-order program for diabetes supplies. These will be the only companies allowed to provide supplies to the six million plus people with Diabetes on Medicare.
Two years ago, All-States Medical Supply was approved to provide supplies to nine areas nationwide, so this expanded territory means the company needs to grow quickly to be ready for the demand when the new contract goes into effect on July 1st.
“In 2011, we learned how to handle an increase in call volume when we won the initial nine area contract,” says Marcus Suess, President and Owner of All-States Medical Supply. “Because our company’s name starts with an “A’, we are at the top of the provider list and expect an even higher call volume than most.”
All of this increase in demand means the company plans to go from forty employees to ninety in the next two months. Open positions are primarily for Customer Care Representatives and Medical Records, but will also include a few positions in billing and shipping departments. All positions are permanent 40 hours a week, Monday through Friday, with most starting salaries at $10.50 an hour. Candidates with previous customer service experience are preferred.
