Optima Health to fill 350 positions
- April 11, 2017
Virginia Beach-based Optima Health is recruiting for 350 new staff positions throughout the commonwealth, including 170 in the Hampton Roads area.
The new jobs are the result of a contract Optima signed last month with the Virginia Department of Medical Assistance Services. Optima Health Community Care will serve a portion of Virginia’s Medicaid recipients, including the elderly and disabled.
Hiring for the positions will take place from April to December. Optima Health Community Care will begin its rollout across the state beginning Hampton Roads on Aug. 1.
About 100 of the staff openings are care coordinator positions, which help patients understand what medical services are covered and how to access them.
Other positions being filled include care coordinator technicians, as well supporting roles such as claims processors, customer service representatives, information technology administrators, pharmacy authorization coordinators and member outreach representatives.
Optima provides health insurance coverage to approximately 450,000 members. Its network includes 26,000 health-care providers and hospitals across Virginia.
