Why Do Insurance Companies Lay Off Case Managers and How You Can Reduce the Risk

But first, you have to get the job!

Insurance companies hire based on the number of contracts they have. If they feel they will win new contracts and need more nurses for CM or UM or other positions, they will post for these positions.

If they get the contract they will hire. If they don’t get the contract they will stop the hiring process immediately. That is why many case managers get through the interview process thinking all went well, only to be told the position is not being filled.

Many of the very large companies that hire work from home case management positions all over the country have smaller “departments” or “lines of business”. So while one may be hiring, another may be laying off because they lost a contract. And while you would think they would just move people from one “department” to another. Often that is not the case, and those laid off will have to “reapply” for other positions.
