See the doctor... from the comfort of your own home!

by Amy

Is there anything worse than loading up sick kids to visit the doctor? If everyone wasn't sick before you got there, surely they will be after you spend an hour in the waiting room.

Oscar, a new health insurance provider in Texas, offers free 24/7 calls with a doctorNo waiting rooms. No leaving the house. Just the care your family needs from the comfort of your living room.

Oscar is the only insurance carrier in Texas offering free and unlimited telemedicine on all their plans--including plans on and off the exchange. Other carriers may offer a nurse hotline, but Oscar's Doctor on Call gives you access to licensed doctors who are capable of writing prescriptions.

Free and unlimited telemedicine is just one of the many ways Oscar is trying to improve access to care for Texans.

Ready to compare Oscar to other carriers like Blue Cross, Aetna, United, Cigna and Humana?

Hi, I'm Amy! I wrote this blog because I care about ideas (big and little) that can help fix our healthcare system. I used to work on projects for Kaiser Permanente and the Parkland Health & Hospital System so I've seen the system inside and out. It's so important that consumers keep up with industry shifts and changing health insurance regulations. I'm also Take Command Health's Content Editor and a busy mom.
