Jay has over 50 years of experience in the healthcare field, with the last 40 dedicated to managing healthcare consulting companies. He began his career in public accounting and earned his CPA as an audit manager, overseeing Medicare audits for hospitals at a national accounting firm. He then joined New York BlueCross (a contracted Medicare Fiscal Intermediary), where he managed Medicare audit and reimbursement activity for hospitals, nursing homes and home health agencies.
Mr. Zimmet began his “single practice” consulting company in the 1970s, advising hospitals on Medicare cost-based and Disproportionate Share reimbursement issues. He co-founded Zimmet & Company with his son Marc in 1993, and guided the young entity through its early growth and evolution to the nationally recognized, “full-service” support concern Zimmet Healthcare is today.
He is active in the firm’s cost reporting division, and oversees financial matters and internal performance benchmarks, while remaining the cultural foundation on which Zimmet Healthcare continues to build.
