The nation was shocked to learn that top employees of the poorly operated VA hospitals for veterans received performance bonuses. So it wasn’t much of a surprise that an Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) application processing center in Wentzville was awarded a major federal contract again.

News reports said the new contract for Serco Inc. is worth about $98 million. The first year contract was worth about $114 million.

The contract has one-year renewal options.
