An Omaha-based medical claims processing company and a partner firm expect to add 250 new jobs in Omaha under a sizable new federal contract.

Under a five-year contract with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Signature Performance and its partner will process health claims and also launch a new centralized national VA claims call center.

Signature Performance, with an office at 10330 Regency Parkway Drive in Omaha, is partnering with Principle Choice Solutions, a Virginia-based health care consulting company, in a joint venture they’re calling Signature Choice.

In addition, two other Omaha firms will support the effort: HDM, a health care processor with offices in Old Mill; and North End Teleservices, a call center founded four years ago near 24th and Hamilton Streets.

The hiring for the project will be spearheaded by Signature Performance. More information on the jobs and hiring process can be found at its website, signatureperformance.com.

Fast-growing Signature Performance was founded in 2004 with eight employees and currently employs 900, about half of them in Omaha. The company has both public and private clients, including previous federal contracts. The firm for the last four years has been recognized in the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce’s Best Places to Work survey.

“Signature and all of our associates are committed to exceptional service to ensure Veterans receive the care they deserve,” said Signature Performance CEO Allen Fredrickson.
