Inc. magazine revealed that Zelis, the healthcare industry’s leading claims cost and payments optimization platform with superior technology and solutions to price, pay and explain claims, has been named for the 10th time to the annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Zelis ranks as No. 2,846 with three-year revenue growth of 140 percent. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
We are honored to be recognized for the 10th time,” said R. Andrew Eckert, Zelis CEO. “Our success and year-over-year growth is attributable to our commitment and partnership with our payor clients, our payment and provider network members and our partners to deliver superior administrative and medical costs savings and make healthcare more affordable and understandable.”
Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists as well. The 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500 percent, and a median rate of 165 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over one million jobs over the past three years.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2020 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”
