Novitas Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of Diversified Service Options with offices at 1800 Center St., in Camp Hill, recently announced it is bringing 250 new jobs to Cumberland County.
Formerly Highmark Medicare Services, Novitas Solutions provides administrative services processing for government-sponsored health care programs on behalf of the federal government and currently employs 650 people at its Camp Hill location.
Florida-based Diversified Service Options is a holding company, wholly-owned by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida, Inc.
The new jobs are the result of a Medicare administrative contract recently awarded to Novitas Solutions.
“We won a very large Medicare contract in November last year,” said Novitas Solutions Spokesperson Adriane Tish. “The result of that is all of these extra jobs.”
“These new jobs are particularly significant because they are right here in Pennsylvania where most of our employees are located,” Novitas Solutions CEO Sandy Coston said in a news release May 31. “We’re happy to be supporting our local communities.”
The new positions, which Novitas Solutions hopes to have filled by this fall, are all healthcare related with a focus on Medicare claims processing and customer service. They include both entry-level and more experienced positions, with salaries ranging from $29,000 to $60,000 annually.
“They’re not temporary, they’re not seasonal, they’re full-time, benefitted, regular employees,” Tish said.
“I think that this really brings good news to our area,” said Director of Cumberland County Economic Development Jonathan Bowser. “Adding 250 professional jobs to the area is needed.”
