LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear says WellCare of Kentucky, a Medicaid and Medicare services provider, will double employment at its call center in Hazard. The eastern Kentucky facility was selected over centers in Tennessee, Texas and Arizona. It will add 16 customer service representatives, a team leader and a supervisor, with all positions to be hired and trained by September. The new jobs are expected to bring $1.6 million in wages annually into the community.
