Oscar’s Health Insurance focuses centers around the Internet and mobile applications. Another click and appointment options — a free doctor’s call or a visit to a primary care physician or specialist — are splashed on the screen with estimated costs. A consumer could expect to shell out a total of $200 in co-pays and typical prescriptions or tests for a visit to a specialist. Oscar offers an Exclusive Provider Organization plan, or EPO — a hybrid of the HMO and PPO models. Consumers, for example, receive no coverage out of network, but unlike an HMO they don’t need a primary care physician or a referral to see a specialist. Providence Health & Services and UCLA Health have signed on to Oscar’s network, giving it 16 area hospitals and more than 5,000 doctors. Learn More ⇒ Los Angeles Times 10.18.2015
