Blue Cross and Blue Shield has announced it’s bringing at least 350 new jobs to North Carolina. Many of the positions will be in the Triad. 

The company will be opening offices in Winston-Salem and Cary to serve Healthy Blue, a new Medicaid plan being offered by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina. 

According to a news release, Healthy Blue has leased 42,000 square feet of office space in Winston-Salem, where it plans to hire up to 170 workers.

Most of those positions will be customer service representatives.

Healthy Blue has also leased space in Cary, where about 200 case management and administrative jobs will be added.

Hiring in both locations is expected to continue through the end of the year.

The Healthy Blue program begins in November. The new hires will be employees of Amerigroup, which is based in Virginia.
