Oscar, a New York-based health insurance company, has announced an operational expansion to Tempe. The company’s new facility will house the Oscar Concierge team. Founded in 2012, Oscar uses a high-tech, data-driven approach, easy-to-understand language and a unique set of benefits to make health insurance simple and transparent, and to deliver what CEO Mario Schlosser says is “a more personal experience to educate and empower our members.”
After a competitive process, Oscar selected Tempe for its newest location after working with economic development representatives from the Greater Phoenix region, including the Greater Phoenix Economic Council, the city of Tempe and Arizona Commerce Authority. The region’s large, skilled workforce, high quality of life and pro-business climate and creative office space options like The Circuit — a new, modern, adaptive re-use project — were attractive draws for the company.
