Zelis accelerates its purpose to modernize the business of healthcare through connected platform and expansion of offerings for healthcare insurers, providers, and their members

Zelis, a company modernizing the business of healthcare, announced the completion of its acquisition of Payspan, a leader in healthcare electronic payment and reimbursement automation services. The U.S. healthcare system is complex, with disjointed and often challenging financial processes.

The combination of these two companies, unifying an expansive array of capabilities in the new Zelis Advanced Payment Platform  will improve the healthcare financial experience for all.

“We’re energized to evolve the business of healthcare together.”

With 18 years of experience and industry presence, Payspan leverages a large healthcare payment network and flexible payment modalities to drive value-based care reimbursement, improve the patient experience, and reduce costs.

The acquisition of Payspan accelerates Zelis’ purpose to modernize the business of healthcare, offering more options to both payers and their clients through a new payments and communications platform. Notably, the acquisition will allow providers to choose their optimal payment modality across the combined payer customer base and further addresses the friction that often pains them in the process of getting paid. Also of note, Payspan brings premium payments to Zelis payer clients while Zelis will offer more customizable and optimized print communications to the Payspan base.
