Founder of Synergy Billing
Jayson Meyer founded Synergy Billing in 2006 to provide revenue cycle
management, provider credentialing and education to Federally Qualified Health
Centers (FQHCs) across the nation.
One of Jayson’s most enduring values is placing people before profits. In keeping
with the mission of maximizing the potential of our community, he has resisted
pressure to relocate his company closer to larger numbers of qualified job
candidates. Instead, he has made a commitment to grow the company in Volusia
County, where he was born and raised, and where he is raising his own young
sons. To that end, he has created the Synergy Career Academy to continue the
training of local residents in the skills that the company needs. Moreover, while
some companies have offshored many of their jobs to other countries in order to
cut labor costs, Jayson maintains his commitment to providing local jobs.
Synergy Billing has been recognized as one of 50 Florida Companies to Watch
by GrowFl and the Lowe Foundation. The company was #767 in Inc. magazine’s
5,000 Fastest Growing Companies in the Nation in 2016. In March 2016, Synergy
Billing received first place in the Brighthouse Regional Business Awards.
Jayson has become a fierce advocate for FQHCs and for improving access
to health care, penning editorials, hosting public officials and meeting with
payers. He also is a leader of efforts to create an ecosystem that encourages
entrepreneurism in Volusia County. In 2016, he was named Young Professional of
the Year by the Volusia Flagler Business Report.
Jayson and his wife Misty, a former elementary school teacher, reside in the
Daytona Beach area with their five small sons.
