For example, Illinois Governor Patrick Quinn granted one of the largest contracts to Cognizant Technology, one of the top corporations using H-1B visas, to outsource jobs to H-1B contractors from India. This contract awards a $71.4 million contract that will pay salaries of up to $256,160 per year per position, plus a $200,000 taxpayer financed slush fund for travel. After all, it's expensive for the new hires to travel from India to Springfield, Illinois. This $71.1 million contract is to upgrade Illinois' Medicaid systems to meet the requirements of ObamaCare. Cognizant filed paperwork with the U.S. Department of Labor to hire 60 senior analysts on H-1B visas at the pay rate of $76,814 to work on this project. Cognizant is busily recruiting consultants, coders, architects, medical billing specialists, and system programmers. Cognizant's consulting fees of up to $256,160 per person per year will replace senior state managers making $150,000 per year.
