Introducing Oscar: The newest health insurance company in Texas!

by Angela

This year there's a new health insurance company in San Antonio and Dallas: Oscar! We're proud to announce that you can now evaluate Oscar's plans right next to the companies you've used before like Blue Cross, Aetna, Cigna, Humana and UnitedHealth.

So.... who is Oscar? Frustrated by the status quo, a group set out to pave a new path in the health insurance world and created a new company called Oscar. The obvious question: what could possibly make a health insurance company all that different?

  • Simple, straight forward benefits. Oscar tries to use straightforward language and concise materials to make their plans easier for customers to understand.
  • Focused on preventative treatment. Oscar offers over 75 free preventative treatments to keep you healthy instead of treating your illness. Free preventative benefits include annual checkups, flu shots, screenings, etc.
  • 24/7/365 access to a doctor from the comfort of your own home. Getting sick is a little easier if you can get in touch with a doctor with a simple call. All Oscar plans come with 24/7 doctor calls so you can skip the lines and waiting rooms.
  • Rewards for staying active. Each Oscar plan comes with a step tracker and they will even reimburse you up to $100/year to meet your health goals.
