Jim Arnold is the founder and CEO of finHealth. finHealth’s primary mission is to “Simplify & Control Healthcare Costs” for large self-insured plans and their employees. It is a lofty goal, but not dissimilar from Jim’s initial ambitions when he launched APEX Analytix back in 1988. Over twenty-five years, Jim was able to grow a one-man operation into a $40 million+ global company that currently serves over 200 Fortune 500 clients with audit services and software.
While there are similarities to APEX in using technology to audit payments, finHealth operates in an even more challenging arena due to complex eligibility requirements, stringent healthcare regulations, arcane medical coding rules and a large pool of specialized medical knowledge/jargon. Much like APEX, Jim plans to achieve success for our clients through a combination of education, benchmarking, cost transparency, powerful data analytics and proprietary algorithms.
Prior to founding APEX, Jim spent two years at Texaco, Inc. as a programmer/analyst working on a cash and banking system. Jim moved to the General Foods/Philip Morris organization in their corporate audit function in order to earn his CPA. After nearly 4 years within corporate audit, Jim was promoted to Manager of Financial Planning for their Maxwell House Coffee division. In that capacity, Jim oversaw financial planning and analysis for nearly $1 billion of annual coffee purchases. Jim is certified as a CPA, CMA, CAPP, CISA and CFE.
