A government contract is opening a call center to help deal with paperwork related to the national healthcare plan.
The processing center will be in the old U.S. Fedelis building just of Interstate 70. Servco Incorporated is bringing at least 600 jobs to this area. Officials say the workers are going to handle applications under the Affordable Healthcare Act, known as Obamacare.
The company was awarded the contract by the U.S. Health and Human Services Department to review, process and troubleshoot the healthcare exchanges that are launching in October.
We understand that jobs will start at $12 an hour and will include benefits. Servco is planning to train the new employees in September and October and have the site up and running by November 1st.
Wentzville's mayor calls the deal a win-win for everyone.
