“We are honored to make the list for the 9th time,” said Doug Klinger, CEO of Zelis Healthcare. “Our growth is a result of our payer clients, our provider network members, our provider payments network members, our partners and our dedicated associates working together every day to help reduce the rising cost of healthcare and help make healthcare more affordable for all of us.”
Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists.

But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
