Oscar and Axa team up

From Oscar Health Plans on February 1:

There’s been a lot of attention and excitement in the industry, and we’re happy to be a part of it.

First, I’m excited to share that Oscar has recently partnered with multinational insurer AXA! It’s a great indicator of Oscar’s solid financials, and we’re excited to continue to grow.

You can learn more by reading about it here, or by following along in the notes below:

Why did Oscar pursue a quota share deal with AXA?

  • All health insurers are required to hold a certain percentage of its premiums as “reserves” so that regulators can ensure that carriers have enough money to pay their future claims.
  • With the AXA deal, Oscar will cede 50% of it’s premiums/claims to AXA, which will free up 50% of its capital requirements
  • We expect that the deal will free up nearly $100 million in capital over the next few years, providing capital relief as we continue to grow

I’m also thrilled to report that we’ve enrolled over 250k members across six states, and expect to generate $1 billion in revenue in 2018. Learn more below:

We’re grateful to have you as a partner during this exciting time of growth at Oscar. If you’ve written Oscar business and haven’t yet filled out our survey, please click the link. Five minutes of feedback could make a big difference!

OSCAR HEALTH loses 105 million

(Bloomberg) — Startup Oscar Health Insurance Corp. lost $105.2 million in its New York and New Jersey businesses last year, a sign that insurers of all sizes are struggling in the new markets created by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).

The losses, $92.4 million in New York and $12.8 million in New Jersey, were disclosed by Oscar in filings with state regulators. Chief Executive Officer Mario Schlosser said some of Oscar’s losses stem from the cost of starting a new health insurer. Others are tied to the same problems befalling bigger health plans: costlier customers and a shortfall in a key government program.

Schlosser said last month that Oscar is adjusting its strategy to limit costs as it enters new markets in California and Texas. The insurer — valued at $2.7 billion in its latest round of funding, according to a person familiar with the matter — has struck deals with limited groups of hospitals and doctors, rather than offering broad networks like traditional insurers. Oscar has also been narrowing its network in New York, and Schlosser said the company is getting better prices for some services as its membership increases.
