What we do

CINQCARE’s culture of care starts with understanding our Family Members, their needs, and their plans. CINQCARE operates with the principle that every person should receive the dignity, respect and care we offer our own Family Members.

By delivering care where you live, CINQCARE’s Family Members experience higher convenience, greater reductions in preventable adverse events, and better closure of gaps in care —which improves outcomes and, in turn, drives down medical costs.

Who we are

CINQCARE is a Black owned company, founded by Tony Welters, whose mother died from a preventable healthcare related condition when Tony was 8 years old and lived in Harlem. Her needless death and the way the healthcare system failed his family, drove Tony to create AmeriChoice, a healthcare company that served people like his mother. Tony and the AmeriChoice team succeeded by meeting members wherever they were as if they were their own family. In 2002 Tony and his team sold AmeriChoice to UnitedHealthcare. In 2020 the COVID19 pandemic disproportionately affected the U.S.’s Black and Brown populations, with well documented health and care disparities inadequately addressed.

The healthcare sector’s response to the pandemic revealed the need to reapply the lessons learned from AmeriChoice. Tony created CINQCARE to answer the call to every day deliver health, care and well being to those who need care the most, with a deep commitment to Black and Brown communities To provide care that treats members like family.
