Governor Steve Beshear announced Friday that Xerox will create 100 new jobs by creating a Kentucky-based call center for people looking for health insurance information through the Kentucky Health Benefit Exchange.

Workers will offer information to callers about available health care coverage offered through the Exchange which is part of the Affordable Care Act.

The call center will open August 1st, just ahead of this fall's launch of the Health Benefit Exchange which is an online marketplace where people can search and compare health insurance plans from different companies.

Governor Beshear said he wants people looking for affordable health plans to "have access to real people who can help them answer questions."

Xerox will establish call centers in Frankfort, Lexington, and London with the potential for other locations around the state creating more than 100 new, full-time jobs.

Federal funding from the Affordable Care Act will support the startup, staffing and training of the call center through 2014.
