Oscar provides an affordable option for consumers who are buckling under the weight of the high PPO premiums of some carriers.
Santa Rosa, CA (PRWEB) September 29, 2016
This month, Health For California Insurance Center (HFCIC) built out website content to promote the Oscar Insurance Company. Oscar is gaining brand awareness in California, and HFCIC thinks that this new carrier will gain considerable market share in the 2017 Open Enrollment Period.
HFCIC is one of Covered California’s top producers. The agency had the highest number of individual and family enrollments during the 2016 Open Enrollment Period. “We think many consumers are going to switch over to Oscar in 2017, and we want to be ready,” says HFCIC CEO, John Hansen.
Why HFCIC is Partnering with Oscar
Recently, Covered CA announced that in 2017, health plans will cost an average of 13.2% more. So, HFCIC agents anticipate this will send many of California’s insured out shopping to find a better deal. And, some of them will end up switching to Oscar.
“We’re going to sell a lot of Oscar insurance during Open Enrollment,” said insurance agent, Holly Davies. “Oscar provides an affordable option for consumers who are buckling under the weight of the high PPO premiums of some carriers. Many consumers will be able to keep their doctor and save money by switching to Oscar.”
“Currently, Oscar Healthcare is only in a few counties,” said HFCIC CEO, John Hansen. “But if they keep playing their cards right, we expect this carrier to expand into more and more of the highly populated areas in the state. We like their networks and their customer service. Also, their website and mobile app are extremely user-friendly.”
“Some of the big name carriers will be implementing huge rate increases in 2017,” added Ms. Davies. “Oscar’s EPO rates will be highly competitive and their plans allow members to choose their doctor without a referral. There’s no out-of-network coverage, but if that doesn’t matter to you, you can get great PPO-like coverage at more affordable rates by going with Oscar.”
