Oscar Health Grows Revenue But Needs Progress To Profitability

Oscar Health went public in March 2021, raising around $1.44 billion in gross proceeds in an IPO. The firm provides health insurance to U.S. consumers and related technologies to businesses and health plan operators. OSCR has produced revenue growth but needs to make meaningful progress toward profitability. I'm on Hold for OSCR until we see further material progress to operating breakeven. A Quick Take On Oscar Health Oscar Health, Inc. (OSCR) went public in March 2021, raising approximately $1.44 billion in gross proceeds from an IPO that priced at $39.00 per share. The firm provides healthcare insurance services to consumers and related software and healthcare plan solutions. While I’m on Hold for OSCR for now, interested investors should look for a trend toward operating breakeven in future quarterly reports from the company as evidence that management is executing according to its intentions to achieve profitability. Oscar Health Overview New York, New York-based Oscar was founded to develop a modern healthcare insurance delivery system directly for individual consumers and through businesses in the U.S. Management is headed by co-founder and CEO Mario Schlosser, who was previously co-founder of Vostu, a social gaming company in Latin America and senior investment associate at Bridgewater Associates, "where he developed analytical trading models." In addition, the company also provides virtual care offerings, such as its Virtual Primary Care service, which has grown in usage since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. OSCR’s Market & Competition According to a 2020 market research report by Grand View Research, the global market for healthcare insurance was an estimated $2.4 trillion in 2019 and is expected to reach $4 trillion by 2027. This represents a forecast CAGR of 6.7% from 2020 to 2027. The main drivers for this expected growth are a continuing rise in the cost of healthcare, growing prevalence of chronic diseases owing to an aging global population and increased discretionary income.
