Novitas Solutions to add 250 jobs in midstateBy Roger Van Scyoc, Contributing Writer
Novitas Solutions Inc., a subsidiary of Diversified Service Options that handles Medicare claims processing, announced today it will add more than 400 jobs in the state, including 250 in Central Pennsylvania.
In November, the company signed a contract to provide Medicare claims processing service for seven states: Arkansas, Colorado, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas. The jobs being added are to help with that workload, said Adriane Tish, a company spokeswoman.
The balance of the new jobs — about 150 — will be in the Williamsport area, Tish added.
Novitas hopes to have the positions filled by the fall.
The jobs will be a mix of experience levels, with salaries ranging from $29,000 to $60,000 per year, according to a news release.
