Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Building a framework for equity & justice.We founded Oscar because we saw the clear systemic flaws in the American health care system. Flaws that made it too expensive and too inconvenient for far too many Americans to obtain quality health care. We have seen that those barriers to care are worsened by both the conscious and unconscious biases that divide us.
At Oscar, we acknowledge that diversity, equity, inclusion, are not just buzzwords but are the fundamental principles that enable us to achieve our goals and support our employees and our members.
