Bedminster, NJ — Zelis Healthcare (“Zelis”), the healthcare industry’s leading provider of claims cost containment and payment solutions and technology, is seeking additional acquisition targets in payment integrity, cost containment, network solutions, payments and specialty benefits management. Zelis Chief Executive Officer Doug Klinger commented, “With over 500 payor customers using our current claims cost containment and payment solutions and technology, we are well positioned to acquire new capabilities to bring additional value to our customers. Zelis is a proven acquirer with significant experience adding new capabilities, technologies, and management teams into the Zelis family.”
