Humana hiring 200 more in Tampa for its Medicare operations

That local job-generating machine known as Humana is at it again.

Less than two months after adding 140 jobs at its national Medicare marketing and telesales call center in Tampa's NetPark, Humana wants to bolster its Medicare service operations in the area by 200 more jobs.

The latest spree would push its total bay area work force to about 2,400 by the end of September, including 1,300 full-time jobs connected to its Medicare operations and telesales call centers. Humana hopes to have all the positions filled this summer to train the hires before the 2012 Medicare open-enrollment period, which begins Oct. 15 and runs through Dec. 7.

Separately, the health care benefits company has been actively beefing up its Humana Cares unit in St. Petersburg.

The division, launched in February 2009 with 200 employees, provides health aid and consults over the phone and in person to chronically ill Humana members. Humana Cares is on pace to grow to 1,000 associates this summer, most of them working in St. Petersburg.

Company spokesman Mitch Lubitz said there were no government tax incentives tied to the job growth at either Humana Cares or the Medicare operations.
