Medical Director, Complex Care - AZ

Oscar, Tempe, Arizona

A better kind of health insurance company

What is Oscar?

Oscar is smart, simple health insurance.  Oscar is designed to be the entrypoint to the healthcare system for our members. Using easy-to-understand language and a unique set of benefits, we are working to change the way our members think about and interact with health insurance. Our goal is to make health insurance simple, transparent and human.

Oscar’s Complex Case Management (CCM) team focuses on caring for our sickest member with chronic medical conditions. The CCM team is made up of clinicians and operations leads who work together to help members access the resources they need.  Additionally, they find creative solutions such as addressing social determinants of health and targeted interventions to improve members’ quality of care and reduce unnecessary utilization.

As our Medical Director of CCM you will be responsible for overseeing the CCM program. You’ll focus on growing the scale and quality of the program, and will provide utilization review for complex members.


What is the position?

We are looking for a Medical Director who is first and foremost an amazing doctor, and is looking to push the envelope on how we deliver care to our sickest members. You’ll be working with a team of Field RNs, Social Workers, Community Health Workers, Operations Leads and Concierge Reps to deliver the best and most barrier-free care. You will be reporting to and working with the National Director of Concierge Services specifically on integrating CCM with our other case management and care delivery infrastructure and initiatives. As Oscar launches in Medicare Advantage, you will also be responsible for tailoring our complex and chronic care management towards this new population.  


Deliverables: What you have to achieve

  • Provide exceptional care over the phone, through messaging, and in-person to support chronic disease management
  • Lead clinical escalation meeting and perform utilization review on complex members
  • Work with Operational Leads to design and deploy interventions and programs. Use social determinants of health to develop interventions or programs to address the needs of clinically complex members

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.
