Oscar Health Logo “With the launch of Oscar Primary Care, Oscar is making even more unprecedented, cost-effective plans available,” Oscar co-founder and CEO Mario Schlosser said.

It’s a good time to be in the health insurance business, and relative newcomer Oscar Health is capitalizing on the situation. The 8-year-old insurer says it will expand its health insurance offerings next year, offering individual and family plans in four more states and 19 additional markets.

The company also announced a new benefit that would give members free access to virtual primary care sessions. The no-cost primary care benefit includes unlimited primary care visits with virtual doctors, as well as some prescriptions, durable medical equipment, lab tests, diagnostic imaging and initial specialist referrals ordered by an Oscar primary care provider. In addition, Oscar announced an expansion of urgent care to include no-cost drugs and labs.
