CoverMyMeds Plans ‘Hundreds’ Of Hires, Including Some In Its Highland Hills Office

Health care technology company CoverMyMeds, which was acquired this year for $1.1 billion by San Francisco-based McKesson Corp., is entering a growth spurt.

CoverMyMeds is hiring “hundreds” of people to add to its offices in Columbus and Cleveland, said Brian Rutkowski, director of talent acquisition for the company. Doctors and other prescribers use the company’s software to electronically ask insurance companies whether a patient’s medication is covered.

Rutkowski didn’t put a specific number to the planned hires, nor did he break down how many will be in Columbus — the company’s main base of operation — and how many will be at the Cleveland-area office in Highland Hills.

The full-time positions CoverMyMeds is seeking to fill involve handling incoming calls, emails and chats to respond to real-time questions in the prior-authorization process and “make sure that our service is very easy to use and efficient,” Rutkowski said. He said the company at present has about 600 employees in Columbus, Cleveland and some remote locations, and it’s experiencing “significant growth from a client and product perspective.”

At the time of the McKesson acquisition, CoverMyMeds had revenue of more than $100 million annually. The company was founded in 2008 by Alan Scantland, Matt Scantland and Sam Rajan. CoverMyMeds now operates as an independent business unit of McKesson, under its existing leadership team.
