UnitedHealthcare, a UnitedHealth Group company, announced Tuesday that it will create 230 new jobs in Colorado Springs, the Business Journal reports. The new hires will help support its contract with the U.S. Defense Department's Tricare program.

The Minnetonka, Minn.-based health insurer says the primary telephone call center will serve nearly three million Tricare beneficiaries and their health care providers in 21 western states, including Minnesota.

“Colorado is a state with a dynamic workforce and leaders who have developed a business-friendly environment,” Stephen J. Hemsley, President and CEO of UnitedHealth Group, said in a news release. “The people of Colorado Springs have a profound appreciation of the military, and we are eager to have them be a part of our work.”

The new jobs will bring UnitedHealth Group’s workforce in Colorado to more than 1,500 people.

Last month, UnitedHealth Group said it was adding 600 new jobs in North Carolina.
