In a wave of hiring connected to Fidelis Care’s planned expansion in the Buffalo market, the insurer is looking to add more than 75 information technology workers to its Amherst office this year.

The IT staffers are among 385 employees that Fidelis Care has committed to hiring over the next five years at CrossPoint Business Park, where the insurer already has 740 workers, including 160 who work in IT.

The Amherst Industrial Development Agency granted $2.5 million in tax breaks for the $16.5 million expansion, which would double the size of Fidelis Care’s office here.

Fidelis Care, the state-wide Catholic health plan, said the new IT positions range from entry level to management and the hiring is driven by company growth and increased membership.
