Hi, we're Oscar. We're hiring a Investigator (Analyst), SIU to join our SIU team.

Oscar is the first health insurance company built around a full stack technology platform and a focus on serving our members. We started Oscar in 2012 to create the kind of health insurance company we would want for ourselves—one that behaves like a doctor in the family.

About the role

The SIU Investigator (Analyst) primary purpose is to detect, investigate, and produce change in aberrant behavior observed in claims and enrollment data. You will work independently to analyze data, and manage investigative caseload from identification through to resolution including overpayment recovery, measuring behavior change and completing necessary reporting to meet monetary and case load targets through investigations and internal process improvements– which should, at least initially, increase year-over-year – for FWA recoupments and savings.

You will report to the Sr. Investigator, SIU.

Work Location:

Oscar is a blended work culture where everyone, regardless of work type or location, feels connected to their teammates, our culture and our mission.

If you live within commutable distance to our New York City office ( in Hudson Square), our Tempe office (off the 101 at University Ave), or our Los Angeles office (in Marina Del Rey), you will be expected to come into the office at least two days each week. Otherwise, this is a remote / work-from-home role.

You must reside in one of the following states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, or Washington, D.C.

  • Perform coding reviews for flagged claims, to support Coding team

Qualifications
