NEW YORK, Aug. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Flume Health Inc., a digital health plan administrator, announced today that Joel Pitt has joined the company as Vice President of National Sales. He will be responsible for new client acquisition and new plan development.
Prior to joining Flume Health, Joel served as Vice President of National Sales at the third-party administrator Group Benefits Services, where he helped build and market both traditional and level-funded plans for self-insured employers. He has been an early adopter of reference-based pricing (RBP), marketing the cost-containment strategy to brokers around the country for the past 5 years.

Cedric Kovacs-Johnson, CEO and founder of Flume Health, commented, “Joel’s industry experience is key to our next phase of growth.

We are thrilled to have him on board!”
Pitt stated of his new role, “Throughout my career in healthcare insurance, I’ve been frustrated by the lack of transparency in both the cost and quality of healthcare, and the barriers this creates for advisors and brokers to bring impactful solutions to their clients. As I look at the future of our industry, there’s a clear need for a company like Flume Health – one that brings together industry expertise and digital technology in order to revolutionize the delivery of care and make it more affordable, reliable and predictable. I’m excited to bring this service out into the world.”
