California delays paychecks to thousands of in-home healthcare providers

HOLLYWOOD, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Thousands of in-home healthcare providers, many living paycheck to paycheck, are running at a loss while payments from the state have been delayed.

The reason? About 40,000 timesheets, which are required to be mailed in, never arrived at a processing facility in Chico.

On Tuesday, slightly more than half -- about 21,000 -- timesheets were delivered by the U.S. Postal Service. But for many families, the pay is still days away and the damage has been done.

Reporter Leanne Suter has the disturbing details in the video above.
