“Sachin Jain’s commitment to healthcare and his dedication to supporting immigrants align perfectly with our mission at the Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowships. His lived experience as a Fellow and his expertise will be invaluable as we continue to identify and empower the next generation of exceptional New American leaders,” Daisy Soros, the president of the Fellowship, explained.
Sachin, is a respected “thought leader in the healthcare industry,” and has a remarkable track record in advocating for equity and accessibility in healthcare services, the foundation said.
SCAN’s revenues top $4.8B and the organization serves more than 300,000 members. Since joining SCAN in 2020, Sachin has launched a range of new products—including SCAN Affirm (HMO), the first ever LGBTQ+ health plan product and SCAN Inspired (HMO), the first health plan designed specifically for women—and expanded its operations into Arizona, Nevada, Texas, and New Mexico. SCAN has also launched four subsidiary medical groups intended to support seniors through the full range of inflection points in the aging process. In a little over three years, SCAN’s total revenues have grown by more than $1.5B.
His passion for innovation and his commitment to addressing societal challenges resonates with the ethos of the Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowships, the statement said.
“As the son of immigrants and as a 2004 Fellow, I am excited to contribute my experience and passion to an organization dedicated to empowering the next generation of leaders and innovators among immigrant communities,” Jain said.
Before joining SCAN, Sachin was the president and CEO of CareMore Health and Aspire Health from 2015-2020. There he developed the first scaled clinical program in the world focused on loneliness and social isolation.

The fellowship provides merit-based funding for New Americans, immigrants, and children of immigrants, who are poised to make significant contributions to U.S. culture, society, and academia. Each year, we award 30 Fellows up to $90,000 to pursue their professional passions across a breadth of disciplines at the graduate institutions of their choice.
