Cleveland Clinic, Oscar expand co-health plan

Cleveland Clinic and health insurance startup Oscar will extend their co-branded health insurance plans to three additional counties in Ohio for 2020, the organizations said Oct. 10. 

The health plans will be available on and off Ohio's individual health insurance exchange beginning Nov. 1 in the state's Ashtabula, Geauga, and Portage counties. The plans will feature 24/7 telemedicine services and access to care teams and navigators. Coverage will begin Jan. 1, 2020.

Currently, Cleveland Clinic + Oscar serves 11,000 Ohio residents in five counties. The companies said the "decision to expand comes after a successful start to the partnership," which was announced in 2017 and launched in 2018. The health plan marked Cleveland Clinic's first entry into the health insurance market.
