Zing Health Appoints Seasoned Healthcare Finance Executive Mete Sahin as Chief Financial Officer

Today Zing Health, a physician-led Medicare Advantage HMO plan, announced that Mete Sahin has been named Chief Financial Officer. Sahin brings 25 years of healthcare finance expertise to further Zing Health’s goal of providing affordable, holistic and inclusive care to improve community health for underserved populations.

Sahin has deep experience assessing, developing and implementing strategies for healthcare companies, from private equity fundraising, financing, M&A and business integrations to Medicare Advantage bidding, internal controls, financial systems and reporting. Sahin’s knowledge in pricing health insurance plans and controlling costs will further Zing Health’s ability to implement innovative Medicare Advantage plans that work in the community to make sure members get the right care at the right time.

“As a consultant during our Chicago launch, Mete was instrumental in raising capital and building solid financial processes and systems,” said Dr. Eric Whitaker, Zing Health co-founder and CEO. “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.”

Sahin previously served as CFO of Advance Health, overseeing its growth and 2018 merger with CenseoHealth to form Signify Health, a New Mountain Capital portfolio company. In this role, Sahin was responsible for creating cost-efficient processes that enabled Advance Health to meet complex care needs through early, person-to-person interventions. These innovations ranged from aligning the incentives of medical providers to improve patient health to heading off potential adverse drug interactions or hospital visits. The network of nurse practitioners worked with doctors in the nation’s leading Medicare Advantage programs to identify gaps and health risks for hundreds of thousands of patients.

Prior to his tenure with Advance Health, Sahin was CFO of XLHealth Corp., helping its subsidiary Care Improvement Plus grow, innovate and stage a rapid financial turnaround.  In six years, XLHealth grew from a $600 million operator of Medicare Advantage special needs plans to a $2 billion plus company acquired by UnitedHealth Group. As CFO of UnitedHealth’s dental, vision and Medicaid business segments, Sahin reorganized offerings to become efficient and more responsive. He was also vice president-finance and controller of Lifemark Corp. before it was absorbed into UnitedHealth.

Mr. Sahin earned his master’s degree from the University of Surrey in England and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.
