Oscar Health has tapped former Uber executive Meghan Joyce to serve as its COO, according to CNBC.

As COO, Ms. Joyce will help the insurer expand its tech-enabled services and personal health coaching teams into dozens of new healthcare insurance markets throughout 2020. Next year, Oscar Health has its eyes on entering the Medicare Advantage market.

"I never though I would land in healthcare," Ms. Joyce told CNBC.

Ms. Joyce is stepping into the COO role after it has been vacant for three years. She left Uber in April, about a month before the ride sharing company went public.

Oscar Health is moving into the Medicare market with $375 million in funding from Google Ventures.
