Virtual Urgent Care: 24/7 access to Oscar Virtual Urgent Care Providers at $0 for whenever a member needs to see a doctor quickly. Tier 1 prescriptions and labs are $0 when prescribed by our virtual urgent care providers, too.
Care Teams: Dedicated Care Guides, including a nurse, who know the member’s medical history, help them navigate their plan, and connect them with in-network providers.
“With the launch of Oscar Primary Care, Oscar is making even more unprecedented, cost- effective plans available. Americans consistently cite cost, quality and convenience as their biggest struggles with the healthcare system – our new offering solves for all of them.” – Oscar Co-Founder and CEO Mario Schlosser.
