Member Service Guide Team Supervisor

New Gloucester, ME /

A bit about us: 

We’re on a mission to change healthcare — how it’s paid for, delivered, experienced. We want to put people center stage, not process or profit. We are guided by a deep belief that every person on Medicare should be treated like we would treat a member of our own family: with loving care and a profound commitment to their health and well-being. 

That’s why we’re gathering a whole bunch of smart, big-hearted people to create a new kind of healthcare company — one that combines compassion, health insurance, clinical care, and technology seamlessly. 

We want to throw the long ball with people we love for a cause we believe in. Life is short. Join us.

Devoted Health is a new healthcare company serving seniors. Our mission is to build a health care plan that treats every member like they were one of our own family. We are devoted to the health and wellness of our members by helping them navigate the healthcare system with personal guides, by utilizing world-class technology to enable a simplified experience, and by partnering with top providers for better health outcomes. We are growing... we're thrilled to be adding more leadership to our Contact Center located on the beautiful and scenic campus of Pineland Farms, New Gloucester Maine.
