First Coast Service opens new office in Columbus

Press Release

First Coast Service Options (FCSO), an administrative services processor for government sponsored health care programs, announced today that the company has opened an additional field office location in Columbus, Ga.

The office is a result of additional Medicare administrative work allocated to them by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). FCSO hired 13 people from the Columbus area to staff the new Columbus office. Around 20 more people will be hired to perform the additional work and placed throughout other existing office locations in Florida and California.

"We picked Columbus because of the highly skilled and experienced candidate pool available to select from," Sandy Coston, CEO and president of FCSO, said.   "We will be performing several technical functions from our suite of administrative services offered predominately to government sponsored health care programs.   We are extremely pleased with the ample number of experienced candidates we have found to staff our new operation.  We are happy to be corporate citizens of the Columbus community."

"One of the keys to positive job growth is creating a business friendly environment," said Mike Gaymon, President and CEO of the Greater Columbus Georgia Chamber of Commerce. "First Coast Service Options was able to find the workforce it needed to grow its business here."  

FCSO is an administrative services processor for government sponsored health care programs such as Medicare and Medicaid.  Services include claims processing, customer service, appeals adjudication, education and outreach activities and functions that help promote the integrity of Medicare program payments.

FCSO has more than 1,000 employees at the company's headquarters in Jacksonville, Fla., and in field offices in Miami, Orlando, Tampa and Camarillo, Calif.
