OVERLAND PARK (AP) - An Overland Park mail service drug prescription company has announced an expansion that will include adding 620 jobs to its current round of hiring.
OptumRx's expansion will make it Johnson County's fifth largest private employer. OptumRx is expected to have about 2,100 employees at its mail and customer service center in 18 months.
