The fired CEO of a West Des Moines non-profit organization is now suing the organization.
Donald Lovasz was fired from Telligen, formerly the Iowa Foundation for Medical Care, in 2010.
According to the Des Moines Register, Lovasz was told he was being fired because of the organization’s financial condition.
He received more than $289,000 in severance pay, but says he was not given bonus pay he was entitled to.
Telligen is one of 53 quality improvement organizations. The company is paid by the Federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to improve the quality and efficiency of health care in the U.S.
