The company aims to significantly expand its in-house health insurance agent sales force

SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- eHealth, Inc. (NASDAQ: EHTH) (eHealth.com) announced today that it is accelerating its talent acquisition campaign in preparation for the Medicare Annual Election Period in the fall of 2021. The company intends to more than double the number of in-house Medicare sales agents over last year's figure to better support beneficiaries shopping for and enrolling in Medicare Advantage plans, Medicare Supplement  plans, and Medicare Part D prescription drug plans.

Many of the new sales agents to be hired by the company will work remotely from around the country while significant numbers will be focused near eHealth's four Sales Centers located in Salt Lake City, Utah; Gold River, California, Austin, Texas; and Indianapolis, Indiana.

"eHealth is a mission-driven company and our sales agents do work that makes a powerful difference in peoples' lives by helping Medicare beneficiaries understand their options and enroll in the best coverage for their personal needs and budget," said Garett Kitch, eHealth's Vice President of Medicare Sales. "We look forward to growing our family of in-house sales agents and training them in preparation for the upcoming sales season this fall."

eHealth offers competitive salaries with uncapped commissions. Successful candidates will receive paid training, paid licensing costs, and medical, dental, and vision benefits from the first day of employment. Among other benefits, eHealth offers employees a generous PTO and holiday schedule, tuition reimbursement, leadership development, and a company-matching 401(k) program.
