Humana to add another 149 jobs in St. Petersburg

Humana is hiring at its national call center facility in St. Petersburg.


The Louisville, Ky.-based health insurer, one of the Tampa Bay region's biggest employers, announced Monday that it will add another 149 jobs at its Humana Cares unit.

This is Humana's latest hiring spree in the bay area, having added a total of about 700 jobs in 2011 at the call center in St. Petersburg and its Medicare services operation in Tampa.

The latest bout of jobs will bring the total number of employees at the Humana Cares unit to 1,450. The company has about 3,000 employees in the bay area and about 5,400 employees in Florida.

Spokesman Mitch Lubitz said the influx in hires is due to a growing number of Humana members and expansion of the Humana Cares program.

The Humana Cares division, which was formed in 2009 to improve Humana access for seniors and patients with chronic illnesses, allows medical professionals to provide aid and consultations over the phone to about 162,000 members across the country.

By answering questions and providing preventive home care, the unit also reduces health care costs by minimizing hospital readmissions and emergency room visits, the company says.

Humana will begin hiring immediately for social workers, community health managers, referral specialists and health coaches.

Eighty-four of the new jobs will be for registered nurses with three or more years of experience.

Lubitz did not disclose a pay range for the jobs, saying only that salaries will be competitive based on experience and qualifications.

The company will host on-site interviews at its Humana Cares headquarters, at 800 Carillon Parkway, beginning Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Interviews will be held Wednesdays from 1 to 5 p.m. and every other Saturday until the positions are filled.
