Indianapolis-based Healthx Inc., which operates a web-based platform for health care payers, said Thursday morning that it plans to add up to 35 jobs by 2018.
The company, which is owned by Charlotte, North Carolina-based Frontier Capital, will invest $200,000 to equip its current, 18,000-square-foot headquarters in the Precedent office park, upgrading technology infrastructure and business systems.
Healthx, which already employs 70 full-time workers, has begun hiring information technology, sales, marketing and customer service personnel.
Founded in 1998, Healthx connects health care payers, health care providers, consumers, employers and brokers. The Healthx client base includes Medicare, Medicaid and commercial health plans, third-party administrators and commercial carriers located in more than 40 states.
The company told IBJ in 2013 that it is benefitting from broadening its suite of services. In addition to helping consumers sign up for their health insurance benefits, it now also can engage them with tools designed to keep them healthier, avoid the need for expensive surgeries, and manage medical expenditures.
The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered Healthx up to $475,000 in tax credits and up to $135,000 in training grants based on the company's job-creation plans. The credits are performance-based, meaning until workers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives.
