“OptumRx has experienced significant growth and is expanding in Oklahoma to support that growth,” said Dirk McMahon, CEO, OptumRx. “Oklahoma’s business-friendly environment and exceptional workforce make the state a natural partner for OptumRx in our efforts to make the health care system work better for everyone, and help Americans live healthier lives.”

The Oklahoma City facility manages mail service order intake and customer service in support of OptumRx and UnitedHealth Group’s pharmaceutical, insurance and health and wellness programs. From Jan. 1, 2012, through the end of this year, the company will have created more than 135 new jobs in Oklahoma City.

Hiring is now underway and people with health care or customer service experience are encouraged to apply online ( http://careers.unitedhealthgroup.com/.aspx; search for Oklahoma City).

UnitedHealth Group will actively recruit military service members and veterans through targeted outreach and hiring and recruitment events.

OptumRx is currently the third-largest pharmacy benefits manager in the United States, with distinctive expertise and resources, and a proven track record that has led to significant growth with both external and internal customers.
