Zelis enables healthcare insurers and providers to ensure access to quality care at a reasonable cost by removing friction in the healthcare financial system.

Modern care is more than clinical.

Our healthcare system is delivering amazing clinical achievements, on a massive scale. But the financial experience is proving to be just as important to how people engage with, feel about, and respond to healthcare. Today, that experience can often be riddled with pain and confusion, and sometimes, a deterrent to care.

Zelis is on a mission to modernize the healthcare financial experience for all, working on behalf of 770 insurers nationwide to optimize the cost of care through intelligent claims management, to power faster and more seamless payments, and to bring more clarity to the financial journey.​
