Freed Associates

Senior Consultant – Health Plan/Health Care



Freed Associates is a health care consulting firm specializing in engagements for health plans, hospitals, health systems, physician practices, and related health care organizations based in California. Since 1991 our clients have looked to us to ensure that their initiatives are completed successfully. We are continually expanding our Senior Consultant team to meet consistent demand for our services. 

Our Senior Consultant team consists of top-notch health care professionals who know hospitals, acute care, ambulatory care, health plan, and pharma operations. We focus on meeting our clients’ needs, and helping to solve their problems. Senior Consultants offer a broad range of health care consulting services to address operational, regulatory, transformational, and management needs.  If you are looking for engaging work, west coast only travel and work/life balance, you should talk to us. 


Depending on your experience, here is a sample of the kind of work Senior Consultants do for our health care clients: 

  • Drive work streams on complex transformation projects and ensure the deliverables are met on budget and delivered with the highest quality
  • Conduct operational assessments in a wide range of health care areas (e.g., health plan administration, ambulatory and acute care, revenue cycle, project management offices, information technology) prepare slide decks and deliver presentations to leadership
  • Provide analyst support on strategy development projects to ensure a shared vision and roadmap, and then implement new and improved business and IT capabilities
  • Frame up and manage project work streams helping our clients perform in the changing Affordable Care Act environment, often bridging IT and operations
  • Manage the development of programs/products from concept through launch engaging all necessary functional areas including operations, strategy, financial, clinical, regulatory, revenue cycle, business intelligence, governance, marketing and communications, and technology


We are seeking motivated, talented Senior Consultants to join our team; we've found that people with health care experience and the following attributes tend to excel at Freed.

  • A high degree of self-motivation, integrity, versatility and flexibility
  • Ability to deal with ambiguity, operate in fluid situations, and embrace a challenge
  • Experience with driving multiple aspects of transformational initiatives in health care
  • Ability to produce high quality deliverables and timely results
  • Enough technology expertise to be the connection and “voice” between operations and analytics
  • Excellent communication, presentation and interpersonal skills, both written and verbal
  • Experience and comfortable working at many levels and functions of an organization, including physicians, nurses, other caregivers, analysts, managers, directors and senior leadership
  • 10+ years of health care and/or health plan related consulting or direct work with clients
  • Willingness to travel on the West Coast required
  • Bachelor’s Degree required. Master’s Degree, PMP, Formal Project Management training, RN or other clinical expertise, and Lean Six Sigma Certifications are a plus


Our clients’ employees are typically quite good at managing the day-to-day, recurring activities needed to run their operation. However, many of these employees have comparatively less experience at managing cross-functional, time sensitive, one-time projects that are unlikely to be repeated again.  This is where we step in to partner with them to plan and execute on a scope of work.  Our clients depend on us to organize the project with a clear path to developing the deliverables and delivering on their desired outcome.


Our clients are major health care providers and payors located in California. Our client contacts are typically the CEO, CFO, CIO, VP, and Directors of these organizations.  We provide a wide array of services to our clients, so versatility and flexibility are attributes we seek and value highly. 

Our firm was founded on a few, simple ideas: 

  • If we take good care of you, you will take good care of our clients
  • You want to be paid well and have challenging work, high caliber colleagues that push you to be better
  • You want the ability to build a career around work/life balance


We are proud of our long-standing commitment to these ideas; they are at the heart of how we treat our people. For example, we pay 100% of the cost of medical, dental, vision, long-term disability and life insurance for all employees.


Our Consultants are located near urban areas throughout the State of California. We are looking for candidates located in the San Francisco Bay Area, Sacramento, Southern California.


Freed Associates is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
