Operational Compliance Associate

Oscar, Tempe, AZ

A better kind of health insurance company

Oscar’s goal is to make health insurance simple, transparent, and human.  Our Concierge Department – teams of Care Guides, nurses, and other healthcare professionals – is a key part of this mission.  Each Oscar member is assigned to one such team, which has a complete picture of their health and can provide them with personalized attention.  Through our Concierge services, Oscar members receive direct services, care management, and complex case management.


As the Operational Compliance Associate embedded in Oscar’s Concierge Department, your role will be to ensure that Oscar’s Care Teams are governed by updated and regularly reviewed policies and procedures, that they are monitoring their work for compliance with governing laws and regulations, and that their work is audited for adherence to these standards.  In so doing, you will be their compliance resource, helping them to design and implement new business processes as rules change and as Oscar grows. You will get to know their work intimately, but retain the objectivity and discipline required of a Compliance professional.


Based in Oscar’s Tempe office (the Oscar Health Hub), the Operational Compliance Associate will report to the Senior Manager, Operational Compliance with responsibility for Oscar’s member-facing functions.


In your first six weeks, you will:


  • Familiarize yourself with the structure, operations, and risk assessment and mitigation activities of Oscar’s Concierge Department
  • Learn the laws and regulations that govern Concierge activities in all states and lines of business


By the end of month 3, you will:


  • Work with your manager and peers to implement company-wide standards for policy and procedure development and design; reporting on operational monitoring; and operational audits
  • Work with Concierge leadership to ensure that all required policies and procedures are under development or review, as appropriate
  • Identify key Concierge metrics in the commercial and Medicare markets for reporting to the Corporate Compliance Committee


Afterwards and on an ongoing basis, you will:


  • Work with Concierge leadership to automate the processes by which business areas are monitored for compliance with governing laws and regulations
  • Develop a Concierge-specific work plan for audit readiness (including CMS Program Audits and commercial Market Conduct Examinations)
  • Collaborate with the Compliance Department’s Privacy Analyst to ensure that all Concierge team members have access to appropriate resources for privacy-related (including HIPAA) compliance
  • Chart a path forward to personal growth as a Compliance professional in a dynamic, fast-paced organization

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.
