PHOENIX -- Connextions, a health services business of UnitedHealth Group, is hiring 500 employees in Phoenix in the next two months.

Connextions helps health insurance carriers enroll, keep and assist their members.

The company has openings for engagement specialists, who will help seniors and other insurance carriers better understand Medicare and prescription drug benefits options so they can decide which plan best fits them. There are also management and staff-level positions available. 

“We are very excited about providing these services from Phoenix, where we know we will be able to find the compassionate and skilled individuals needed to help consumers manage their health and wellness,” said Steve Auerbach, Connextions president.

Connextions will host a job fair on Aug. 27 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at its new office at 4809 E. Thistle Landing, Suite 110, in Ahwatukee. Those interested can learn more about Connextions and the company's available Phoenix jobs at the fair.

“We recognize Phoenix as a strong local workforce here,” said John Hernandez, vice president of operations at Connextions.

UnitedHealth Group already serves 1.6 million Arizonans, and the new jobs will increase the company’s total employees in Arizona to about 4,600.
