Medicare Advantage HMO plan Zing Health has named Mete Sahin as its new Chief Financial Officer. In his role, Mr. Sahin will be responsible for helping Zing Health to build on its goal of providing affordable and inclusive health to under-served communities.
"As a consultant during our Chicago launch, Mete was instrumental in raising capital and building solid financial processes and systems," said Zing Health co-founder and CEO Dr. Eric Whitaker. "As an experienced healthcare finance executive, Mete knows the playbook for running a comprehensive insurance plan that improves outcomes for its members at lower cost. We look forward to working with him in a full-time capacity as he builds a healthcare finance team with tremendous Medicare Advantage experience and proven performance."
Mr. Sahin has a long history of developing and implementing strategies to grow healthcare companies, including at his last appointment as CEO of Advance Health. In that role, he helped to create affordable processes for meeting care needs through in-person interventions.
"Due to the COVID-19 crisis, people are more aware of the importance of caring for their immune system and treating underlying risk factors. With the right processes and protocols in place, a higher level of care can drive down medical costs," said Mr. Sahin. "I'm confident in Zing Health's mission to offer attractive Medicare Advantage plans that deliver high-quality services to underserved populations at little or no cost to members. I look forward to working alongside Eric and the rest of his leadership team to accomplish these goals."
