Health Plan Senior Financial Analyst

An exciting Senior Financial Analyst opportunity has recently opened with this respected Southern Texas non-profit Health Plan organization. Join a knowledgeable and dedicated team of financial experts and help advance fiscal decision making models for an organization that improves the lives of thousands of people per year.

An active member in many Texas-based insurance programs such as CHIP, Texas STAR, and STAR Kids, the Senior Financial Analyst will join a non-profit health insurance foundation is committed to improving the lives of men, women, and children throughout Southern Texas. This commitment is evident in the money, time, and labor the health plan donated to citizens adversely affected by Hurricane Harvey. A commitment that they’re still fulfilling by offering emergency prescription refills and replacements for lost or damaged medical equipment long after the waters have receded.

Reporting to an experienced and talented Director of Finance, the Senior Health Plan Financial Analyst will join a department that is central to functions of the health plan. You’ll work with a sensitive member, community, and organizational data to extract and analyze actionable insights, presenting your findings to members of the Senior Leadership Council among others. Experience with healthcare-specific financial analysis is helpful, but not necessary.

In the pursuit of discovering these health care financial insights, the Senior Financial Analyst will work with a team of Financial Analysts, occasionally leading a project team. You’ll get to use advanced external software suites such as Truven Analytics and the PACT Database to extract market data, and you’ll use data from the non-profit health plan’s internal Electronic Health Record (EHR) to develop benchmarking comparisons. Although these more advanced software-suites will be important to your analytics, an advanced-level knowledge of SQL (Standard Query Language), MS Excel, and MS Access skills will be your everyday workhorse.   

Texas’ Gulf Coast is well known for its warm climate, genuinely nice people, great schools, a fantastically low cost of living, and some of the state’s best outdoors activities. The incoming Financial Analyst will discover great cities where there are tons of things to do, but you don’t have to worry about the traffic and crime of big city life. You won’t need a parka or snowshoes here, as the area has very mild winters and hot summers with just the right onshore breeze. When this person wants outdoors activities, there are National and State Forests just a short drive away and beautiful, warm beaches just waiting to be explored. For the times you need the lights, sounds, and action of cities, the Health Plan Analyst will find a gorgeous downtown with all the amenities of a big city.

The Financial Analyst will play a very important role in developing and maintaining the data analytics programs that keep this community Health Plan and this hospital running smoothly. You’ll play an important role in creating the internal fiduciary and financial guidelines that will allow this non-profit health plan to continue supporting the region for years to come. Supporting you in this role will be a great team, a tenured and dedicated leadership, a generous benefits package, and a competitive compensation program.
