INDIANAPOLIS (Inside INdiana Business) — One year after opening its eastern U.S. headquarters in Indianapolis, California-based eHealth Inc. (Nasdaq: EHTH) is adding dozens of jobs. The online health insurance marketplace is looking to fill about 150 full-time Medicare sales positions.

More than 190 employees currently work for the company in Indianapolis. eHealth says the new recruits will work from home, the same as the current employees, during the pandemic. 

“One year on, we’re still excited to be in Indianapolis and we’re thrilled to be hiring in the area,” said eHealth Chief Executive Officer Scott Flanders. “Our Medicare sales agent roles are good jobs with solid compensation and benefits, plus training and support for working at home through the coronavirus pandemic.”

The new positions are part of the up to 500 new jobs eHealth said it would create as part of a $10 million investment to establish its Indy operations. Flanders told Inside INdiana Business the Indy location could become the company’s largest operation.
