    Default HCC 11/28 jobs

    Has anyone applied and tested for these Altegra Health HCC positions, or been hired on for the project yet? I've filled out an application and test, but haven't heard anything back. Assuming they're already filled...sigh! Just curious if others have been hired on yet.
