Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - FRONT PAGE - Free­man staff

United-Health­care is look­ing to hire 70 peo­ple to work as full-time cus­tomer ser­vice rep­re­sen­ta­tives, cus­tomer ser­vice ad­vo­cates and claims rep­re­sen­ta­tives to work in the com­pany’s of­fice on Boices Lane Ex­ten­sion.

The in­sur­ance com­pany will host a “vir­tual job fair” Oct. 3-6 at bit.ly/kingstonVHE, al­low­ing peo­ple to ap­ply on­line for po­si­tions.

United-Health­care Pub­lic Re­la­tions Di­rec­tor Maria Gor­don Shydlo said in an email that the hired em­ploy­ees will an­swer cus­tomers’ and providers’ calls, process claims and pro­vide clin­i­cal case man­age­ment. She said peo­ple with ex­pe­ri­ence in health care or cus­tomer ser­vice are en­cour­aged to ap­ply.

She said the com­pany will be hir­ing peo­ple to work at com­pany’s Ul­ster of­fice and from home.

Shydlo said pay will de­pend on the po­si­tion, but that health in­sur­ance and other ben­e­fits are part of the com­pen­sa­tion pack­age and there will be op­por­tu­ni­ties for ad­vance­ment within the com­pany.

Cur­rently, Shydlo said, United-Health­care has about 800 em­ploy­ees work­ing in its Ul­ster of­fice.

“We have had a cus­tomer ser­vice cen­ter in [Ul­ster] since 1995, and it re­mains an im­por---

tant cus­tomer sup­port cen­ter for us, sup­port­ing busi­nesses and in­di­vid­u­als here in New York and

across the coun­try,” Shydlo wrote. “We are com­mit­ted to the Kingston mar­ket and the broader Hud­son Val­ley re­gion as an em­ployer and com­mu­nity mem­ber.”

The on­line job fair will run 24 hours a day.
