News Briefs: Oscar Leaves Arkansas, Colorado
Oscar Health, Inc. will cease operations in Arkansas and Colorado at the end of this plan year. Chief Financial Officer Scott Blackley defended the decision by saying “they’re really small” markets for the firm in response to a question from Goldman Sachs analyst Nathan Rich during the startup insurer’s latest earnings call, according to the Motley Fool. He added that “they don’t have a significant or even close to material effect [on profits.] There is a benefit though from just reducing…compliance work.” The firm has yet to post a profit, prompting criticism from managed care insiders.
