This year’s Forbes list of the wealthiest Americans includes a class of 11 healthcare leaders, topped by Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon. The reason why Bezos—and his $161 billion bank account—qualifies in the healthcare category is because of Amazon’s recent acquisition of the primary care concierge-medicine provider One Medical. For $199 a year, One Medical members receive low-acuity services, labs, same-day appointments, and no-cost 24/7 access to virtual care. The company operates brick-and-mortar locations in 25 major metropolitan areas with more on the drawing board. 

Who’s rich? According to data sifting from Becker’s Hospital Review, the other healthcare leaders on the Forbes list include executives from HCA Healthcare, EHR companies, device and equipment manufacturers, foundations, and biotech companies.
