Oscar’s wild pitch
Trump’s favorite health insurer is betting on the intangible (think: quality) as it makes plans to cut some 20K doctors and decrease its hospital network by more than half in the NYC area. Oh, and then there’s that tiny looming premium hike of ~13% come 2017. Bottom Line: with ~$727 million in funding, Oscar has been attempting to disrupt healthcare since 2014. If it hasn’t worked out yet, then it’s not the end.
