CHICAGO, Nov. 9, 2022—Zing Health, a provider of managed care Medicare Advantage plans, has been named among the 2022 Best Places to Work in Healthcare by Modern Healthcare magazine. Workers from varied life experiences advance their healthcare careers through Zing Health’s transformative vision to reduce healthcare disparities.

This is the first Best Places to Work recognition for Zing Health, which was founded in 2019. Modern Healthcare’s annual awards are based on confidential employee surveys. The program recognizes 150 healthcare organizations that empower employees to provide the best possible care, products and services.

“Zing Health employees understand how their actions contribute to the Zing Health mission and truly feel part of solutions for health equity,” says CEO Andrew Clifton. “We’re humbled that as a young organization we’ve been recognized among our peers for how we live out our shared purpose to address social determinants of health.”

 Through diversity, equal pay and parental leave policies, Zing Health supports the values of differences and work-life balance. Most employees work remotely. Benefits include employer-paid life and short-term disability insurance. Zing Health’s 401(k) plan has a 4% employer match with immediate vesting. An intentional diversity recruitment strategy is backed by operational practices such as the “Do Tank,” where diverse employees gather to solve company problems.

 Zing Health strives to create social impact in its operations. Its innovative Medicare Advantage plans use technology and clinical insight to serve historically underserved populations. The “Zing way” is a corporate culture that encourages superior service, trust, resourcefulness and socially conscious behavior. Customer service representatives take time to find affordable care and prescription drug coverage. A care team includes community social workers who connect members with clinical and social services. Through its Pledge 1% program, the workforce can spend 1% of work hours on volunteer work in the community.

 “Medicare Advantage plans give us a platform for addressing health disparities,” said Founder & Executive Chairman of Zing Health, Dr. Eric E. Whitaker, a physician and entrepreneur, who in 2021 was named as a Modern Healthcare innovator in population health. “Everyone in our organization feels they’re breaking ground in giving older adults the capacity to live a longer and healthier life.”

 Providers, insurers and suppliers who received the 2022 Best Places to Work in Healthcare honors were featured in Modern Healthcare’s Oct. 3 issue, and at In September, Chicago startup incubator 1871’s 2022 Momentum Awards honored Zing Health with its inaugural Social Impact Award for its efforts to improve health outcomes in chronically underserved populations.
