Direct-to-consumer health insurer Oscar has appointed Alessa Quane as its Executive Vice President and Chief Insurance Officer.
She joins Oscar from AIG, where she served as Executive Vice President and Chief Risk Officer. In this role she oversaw the management of risk on an enterprise-wide basis and value-based performance metrics.
In this newly created position, Quane will serve on Oscar’s leadership team and will report to Chief Executive Officer Mario Schlosser.
The insurer also hired Sameer Amin, who has joined the company as Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer.
He previously worked at CareMore Health, where he served as the Regional Chief Medical Officer for the Western US.
In this role Amin will be responsible for implementing Oscar’s clinical capabilities and enhancing the quality of care and outcomes for its members.
Both positions will come into effect from March this year.
Mario Schlosser, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer commented on the appointments: “Alessa and Sameer are joining Oscar at an exciting time as we continue to expand our footprint and product offerings, including the launch of Oscar’s Virtual Primary Care in 2021.
“Their expertise will help us build upon the strength of our existing insurance and clinical experiences and further our ambition of making our members feel like having Oscar is like having a doctor in the family.”
