Jason Beans

About

One of Jason Beans’ favorite analogies about his approach to life is, “When a car is coming towards you at an intersection, you have two choices: You can either hit the brakes or hit the gas.” Driven by a goal to positively impact every American by transforming healthcare, Jason hits the gas and keeps his foot firmly on the accelerator.

As CEO of Rising, Jason has built a robust framework to increase the cost effectiveness and quality of healthcare.  His ability to successfully operate within two typically conflictual paradigms, the medical and financial systems, is a feat that has not gone unrecognized. Inc. magazine ranked Rising in its prestigious Inc. 5000 list in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011; Crain’s magazine featured the Company in its Fast 50 list of fastest growing Chicago companies in 2010 and 2011; and the Private Company Index (PCI) has profiled Rising as a Top 10 Growth company numerous times.

Possessing more than 20 years of industry experience and widely acknowledged as a medical cost containment and efficiency expert, Jason has been featured in various media outlets, publications and forums including: The Wall Street Journal, CNN, NPR, Fox Business, Fox News, Chicago Tribune, LA Times, Crain’s, Forbes, Fortune, Risk Management Magazine, Business and Insurance, TechDecisions for Insurance, Insurance and Technology, AMBestWeek, Managed Care Magazine, WorkCompWire, AmComp and Lloyds of London.  Jason has also been a keynote speaker on his inspirational company culture and precedent-setting code of ethics. Beans’ corporate philosophies are featured in SmartBusiness and Norman Scarborough’s graduate program textbook, Effective Small Business Management. He also publishes a Blog that offers food for thought in the areas of: corporate culture,  building a business,  and medical cost containment.

Prior to founding Rising, Jason held multiple executive positions in the medical cost containment field. He was the National Director of Property and Casualty Operations at Concentra, held several management positions with CRA Managed Care (eventually Concentra) and was a founding principal of BND Operations Company, a medical management consultancy.  Notably, Jason is a longstanding contributor and consultant for the Rhode Island Workers’ Compensation Medical Fee Schedule rules, which Rising still updates and publishes today.

His expertise helps steer several Boards of Directors in the insurance and managed care industries and he is an Adjunct Professor at the University of Florida on MSA Administration topics. Jason graduated from the MIT/EO Entrepreneurial Masters Program – a program that Inc. magazine ranks as the top of its kind, selecting 60 entrepreneurs worldwide who are considered our next generation of leaders. Jason holds a Finance degree from Boston College and has a black belt in Jujitsu.
