eHealth, a company that owns and operates private online health insurance exchange, has established a new office in Indianapolis, Indiana.
The new centre will act as the company’s Eastern Time Zone operations and technology headquarters.
However, the company’s primary corporate headquarters will continue to be based in Santa Clara, California.
eHealth is hiring a team of more than a hundred people to work in the Indianapolis office. So far, more than 125 positions have already been filled.
eHealth CEO Scott Flanders said: “I’d like to offer my sincere thanks to Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb, Secretary of Commerce Jim Schellinger, and Indianapolis mayor, Joe Hogsett for the welcome they have provided us.
“As we expand our Medicare business, our new Indianapolis facility will house an important part of eHealth’s technology team and a significant number of licensed Medicare agents to help eHealth customers find the best coverage for their needs.”
Using eHealth’s online health insurance exchange, customers can compare health insurance plans from various insurance firms side by side and buy as well as enrol in coverage online and over the phone.
Through its subsidiaries, eHealth is licensed to sell health insurance in all 50 US states and the District of Columbia.
Additionally, the company offers educational resources, telephonic support, and online and pharmacy-based tools to help Medicare beneficiaries, choose the right plan and enrol in select plans online or over the phone through Medicare.com, eHealthMedicare.com, GoMedigap and PlanPrescriber.com.
