JACKSONVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) -- Hospital employees at North Metro Medical Center can now breathe a sigh of relief. For a month, more than 250 workers were without medical insurance.
The hospital has had financial problems in the past, and this year they've had three CEOs.
Employees did not have insurance cover their claims last month because the hospital failed to pay the premiums.
Denise Oxley from the Arkansas Department of Labor explained that many employees called her department concerned. "They are concerned either about their wages, or deductions have been made from their paid-for insurance that has not been paid to the insurance company....people want to know basically what their rights are."
