Senior Manager, Regulatory Affairs

Oscar, California

A better kind of health insurance company

The Regulatory Affairs team is responsible for managing day to day contact with all our regulators, securing approval of Oscar’s plan portfolio via annual filings, monitoring compliance with ongoing reporting obligations, and ensuring member-facing communications meet the expectations set by our regulators.

As a Senior Manager, Regulatory Affairs, based in Oscar’s Culver City, CA office, you will be responsible for building out systems, processes, and procedures to track, monitor compliance, and, in some instances, submit Oscar’s ongoing reporting obligations to regulatory bodies, associations, and exchanges for commercial and Medicare Advantage insurance operations. You will be a primary contact point for our regulators at insurance departments and state-based exchanges, and help secure regulatory approval for Oscar’s plan portfolios to be offered on and off health insurance marketplaces. You will work closely alongside other Oscar teams including Clinical, Finance, Risk, Legal, Network, Sales, and Marketing to ensure Oscar’s full regulatory compliance.

In this role, you will support the Senior Manager, Regulatory Affairs and lead a team operating remotely from Oscar’s New York headquarters in doing the following:  

  1. Track, monitor, and ensure the timely and accurate submission of Oscar’s ongoing regulatory obligations.

  3. Develop and maintain a repository of internal procedural guides on reporting obligations to support business units and retain institutional knowledge.
  4. Oversee account relationships with regulatory bodies in Oscar’s West and Central regions, including state insurance regulators (e.g., DMHC in California, Arizona Department of Insurance, Texas Department of Insurance), and state-based exchanges (e.g., Covered California).
  5. Prepare, file, and secure approval and certification of Oscar’s insurance products through the annual QHP filings (form, binder, rate, network) with state regulators, state exchanges, and CMS.
  6. Project manage the development of member forms, including Certificates of Coverage, Summaries of Benefits and Coverage, and Schedules of Benefits. These notices are sent to each policyholder on an annual basis and are a key milestone for every member.
  7. Compile and maintain filing deadlines for form, binder, rate, and network annual QHP submissions by state and LOB.
  8. Manage, train, provide feedback and assign duties for direct reports to support their professional growth and ensure productivity, efficiency, and effectiveness in their roles.

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.
