Boosts company’s head count to 750-plus

Collective Health is an employee health benefits platform with integrated member advocacy, clinical navigation, and an extensive partner ecosystem. It said that with the Plano additions, the total number of employees across the entire company, including its San Francisco headquarters and customer experience center in Lehi, Utah, now exceeds 750 people.

The company said the Plano office is an important hub for its bilingual customer and member experience team, enabling Collective Health to further expand its support to Spanish-speaking members, as well as reinforcing its service experience for all clients.

“I’m thrilled to see Collective Health put roots down in the Plano community,” Jim Springfield, president, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas and 2024 board chair-elect, Dallas Regional Chamber of Commerce, said in a statement. “Collective Health’s mission to provide a high-quality, cost-effective health benefits platform and service to employers across the region will support the thriving business community and increase job opportunities for our local residents. I look forward to watching the company’s continued success in Texas.”

Collective Health said the expansion to Texas comes on the heels of its recent 10-year anniversary, where the team celebrated a decade of growth, progress, and results toward its goal of making it easier for people to understand, navigate, and pay for their healthcare.

Since its founding in 2013, Collective Health has grown to service over 500,000 members and 70-plus corporate clients nationwide.
