Analyst, Contracting

Oscar, New York

A better kind of health insurance company


What is the Position?

At Oscar, we work hard to provide the kind of health insurance we would want for ourselves. This year, Oscar’s member population nearly tripled to 250,000 members. Approximately 5,000 members will need see a doctor outside of Oscar’s network for non-urgent, specialized care. In these cases, Oscar’s Single Case Agreement (SCA) Contracting team negotiates contracts for a single patient to receive care from an out-of-network  provider. Because members often need this care urgently, the SCA Contracting team is a fast-paced, cost-conscious and fastidious team.

As a SCA Contracting analyst, you will play a central role in ensuring that these contracts are executed quickly and carefully. You will compile and price contracts for our members to receive care from out-of-network providers, reach out and follow up to get these contracts signed, and input terms of the signed contract to our claims team so that providers are paid properly.  You will ensure timely and accurate contracting for approved out-of-network care, and connect providers to senior SCA Contracting analysts when they have questions or wish to negotiate contracts.

You have...

  • Developed a comprehensive understanding of the contract drafting and execution processes.

About Oscar

Founded in 2012, Oscar is probably the last thing you would expect from a technology startup – a seemingly old-fashioned healthcare insurance provider. The company provides clients with the kind of clarity and simplicity we have come to expect from an e-commerce site. And, of course, they're hiring.
