Startup Health Insurers Oscar, Clover Signal Course Changes After 2Q

  • Aug 19, 2022

    The four publicly traded startup health insurers — Oscar Health, Inc., Bright Health Group, Inc., Clover Health Investments Corp. and Alignment Healthcare, Inc. — continued to post losses in the second quarter of 2022, but two out of the four lost less money than they did in the prior-year period. Beyond their finances, however, some of the companies are making changes to their business strategies in a bid to set a stronger course for the future. 

    Medicare Advantage-focused Clover Health, for instance, revealed that CEO Vivek Garipalli will be replaced by Andrew Toy, the company’s current president, starting on Jan. 1, 2023. In an Aug. 8 news release, Clover said the move “is the culmination of a succession plan we’ve had in place since Andrew joined Clover as CTO and led the development of Clover Assistant,” referring to the company’s proprietary clinical decision-making tool.
