BEDMINSTER, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NJBIZ announced its Power 50 Healthcare list and named Zelis Healthcare CEO Doug Klinger as #29. The annual ranking identifies the most important, successful and influential people in New Jersey’s healthcare sector, including thought leaders, heads of organizations, consultants and lobbyists, who work to improve healthcare in the state.
NJBIZ noted that Klinger leads “perhaps the most important health care company you’ve never heard of,” but that Zelis’ relatively low profile won’t be long lasting as the company’s growth trajectory will continue.
“On behalf of our dedicated team at Zelis, we are grateful for this recognition,” said Klinger. “Every day, our 900 people-strong team works on behalf of health insurers, healthcare providers and healthcare consumers across our country to help control the rising cost of healthcare and make healthcare more affordable for all of us.”
Klinger has been CEO of Zelis since the founding of the company in 2016. Under his leadership, Zelis has generated more than $25 billion in network and claims costs savings and delivered more than $21 billion in payments on behalf of insurers, providers and consumers nationwide.
