Humana hiring 170 more in Tampa Bay

Humana is apparently in a healthy internal competition over which of its Tampa Bay operations can grow the fastest.

Its latest jobs boost: Humana's NetPark campus in east Tampa is adding 170 call center jobs, primarily telesales positions to market the company's Medicare benefit plans and other products.

All told, the Louisville, Ky., insurer is adding more than 500 telesales and client service jobs nationwide at its call centers across the country as it ramps up for the annual Medicare open enrollment period from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7. Its other call centers are in Miramar; Madison, Wis.; Phoenix; and San Antonio, Texas.

Separately, Humana's national chronic care program, which is based in St. Petersburg, recently announced it is hiring 100 more health workers over the next six months. The fast-growing, 8-year-old unit — called Humana Cares/Senior Bridge — connects nurses and health coaches over the telephone and via video with chronically ill Humana members to help them manage their care at home to spare unnecessary or costly physician visits.

Humana has now swelled to more than 3,000 employees in the Tampa Bay area, part of a 6,000-strong workforce in Florida and 49,0000 nationwide.

Humana spokeswoman Nancy Hanewinckel said the newest NetPark jobs are permanent positions that will remain in place after the Medicare open enrollment period to handle other lines of business.

Hanewinckel did not give a pay range, but said the company offers competitive salaries as well as incentive bonuses. If a candidate is qualified but does not hold a health insurance license, Humana will provide the necessary training and cover expenses in order for the new employee to get licensed, she said.

Humana is seeking to fill the jobs immediately, with starting dates stretching from June 3 to July 15.
