What You Need to Know

  • The for-profit insurer is recruiting up to 200 temporary enrollment representatives in and around its home city.
  • The reps will field inquiries from current and prospective members seeking a 2022 Medicare Advantage or Prescription Drug Plan.
  • While the seasonal positions are home-based, Humana is seeking local applicants, since some roles may transition to full-time work.

In anticipation of the upcoming open enrollment season, Humana has hung up a “Hiring Now” sign. The for-profit insurance company is looking to hire as many as 200 seasonal enrollment representatives in and around Louisville, Kentucky, where it is based.

Humana’s Medicare enrollment representatives respond to inquiries from current and prospective members seeking to enroll in a 2022 Medicare Advantage or Prescription Drug Plan. They also review and process member applications.

The new hires will work for six months or less through the Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plan open enrollment period, which runs from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7.

Although these seasonal positions are home-based, Humana is seeking applicants who live within a 50-mile radius of the company’s downtown Louisville location, as there may be opportunities for some of these roles to transition to full-time employment.

Humana said in a statement that the positions it is looking to fill offer competitive compensation with a strong hourly rate and eligibility for a retention bonus up to $1,000.

Virtual interviews will begin this month, and start dates for enrollment representatives will range from late August through October. Humana said it is looking for professionals with customer service experience, attention to detail and proficiency in Microsoft Outlook and Excel. 

Candidates interested in the seasonal positions can apply online at careers.humana.com and enter #HumanaSeasonalJobs in the keyword search box.

Humana noted that it is working with several community organizations to recruit candidates for the seasonal positions. It also has full-time roles available across the organization.

Some 13,000 Louisville-based employees work for the company.
