Kentucky hospital blames Medicare error for delay in paying workers

Pineville, Ky.-based Southeastern KY Medical Center administrators said an error from Medicare caused a delay in paying employees, CBS-affiliated television station WYMT reports.

The hospital's employees said they are six days late in receiving their paychecks.

The delay comes from an error with Medicare that created a $200,000 shortfall, administrator Kevin Couch told WYMT.

The hospital is working to ensure any issues with payers are resolved. The hospital expects to distribute paychecks by Dec. 29.
