Provider Engagement Lead

Full time
Our health system is broken, and it’s a huge problem. Costs are rising out of control while the patient experience gets worse. To make big improvements, we need innovative solutions that make great care available at affordable levels. At Sana, we are passionate about fixing this problem.

To do this, we have built a new kind of health plan from scratch for employers and their employees. Our customers can offer rich benefits to attract and retain top talent while paying less than traditional plans. Sana uses proprietary technology to cut out waste and a novel financing structure that gives companies money back when claims are low, saving up to 30% on total costs.

Building strong relationships with healthcare providers is an essential part of Sana's strategy. As the Provider Engagement Lead, you will expand and refine our existing provider access strategy in conjunction with our leadership team. You will then have a direct role in implementing that strategy - managing network vendor relationships and direct contracts. The job is part business development, part operations, part product development and part customer service.

    • Build a long-term provider access strategy alongside company leadership
    • Develop and maintain vendor partnerships with PPO networks and repricing partners
    • Work with our product team to develop solutions to facilitate member access to care
    • Respond quickly to new provider requests from members and manage negotiations to satisfactory resolution
    • Lay the organizational foundation for our provider engagement team to scale
