jobs, investing in a 38,000-sq.-ft. Lenexa office

Convey Health Solutions (Convey), a leading provider of specialized
healthcare technology and services for the government-sponsored markets,
today announced the opening of a new distribution facility and creation
of more than 40 jobs in Lenexa, Kansas.

Convey is experiencing rapid growth in its Over-The-Counter (OTC)
supplemental benefits business. Shipping volume is forecasted to grow
more than 50% in 2019, requiring additional capacity. The new facility
will employ state-of-the-art shipping technology designed to increase
efficiency and streamline the distribution process. With the opening of
the Kansas site, Convey's OTC shipping capacity will more than triple.

"As we continue to provide end-to-end OTC solutions for major health
plans in the Medicare and Medicaid markets, we want to operate in a
central location to provide better service to our clients and their
members," said Jonathan Starr, Executive Vice President at
Convey. "Convey's OTC benefit administration services are already
supported by a robust and purpose-built technology and will now utilize
a technology-focused distribution facility that can economically and
efficiently deliver OTC products to members anywhere in the continental
United States in 3 days."

With the expansion of 38,000-sq.-ft. centrally located in Kansas, the
new facility will inventory, track, and ship OTC products and supplies
nation-wide to Medicare and Medicaid members. Convey's OTC benefits
program is designed to help members better manage their day-to-day
health while at home, especially for those who are chronically ill and
want to maintain independence.

"Our state's central location always makes Kansas the prime choice for
companies looking to locate a distribution center, and combined with the
Kansas City area's already strong concentration of healthcare service
companies, Convey Health Solutions couldn't have picked a better
location for its new facility," said Kansas Governor Jeff Colyer, M.D.
"We are excited to have this pioneering technology company expanding in
Kansas and look forward to our continued partnership."

"We are very pleased that Convey Health Solutions has chosen Lenexa for
their new facility," said Lenexa Mayor Mike Boehm. "This operation will
feature top of the line technology and will serve as a showcase for the
industry. I think Convey will be a great addition to the region."

"It is always exciting to welcome a fast-growing company like Convey
Health Solutions to our region," said Tim Cowden, president and CEO,
Kansas City Area Development Council. "The KC region continues to rise
to the top of the list of cities that are ideal for logistics, supply
chain and distribution operations and we're honored to be the newest
home for Convey."
