Medicare just released their list of only 18 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 people with Diabetes on Medicare.

Two years ago, All-States Medical Supply, on Old Hendersonville Road in Fletcher, was approved to provide supplies to nine areas nationwide, so this expanded territory means the company needs to grow qucikly 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," company president Marcus Suess said in a news release. "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."
The increased demand means the company plans to grow from 40 employees to 90 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 wages at $10.50 an hour. Candidates with previous customer service experience are preferred.
