(Harrisburg) -- A financial management company says it's made significant progress in getting paychecks out to Pennsylvania home care workers after a rocky transition from the previous system.
Boston-based Public Partnerships LLC says it's paid 92 percent of the timesheets for the workers, up from 80 percent week ago.
Dina Baker with Public Partnerships says calls to the customer service center are down considerably, and the "data integrity problems" have also diminished.
The state Department of Public Welfare agrees there's been progress on the problem, which concerns payment to the people who work as personal care attendants for disabled Pennsylvanians in their homes.
The state replaced local nonprofit financial managers with the company in a cost-savings move.
