Associate Director - Medicare Compliance
By 2020, not only will Oscar operate in at least nine states, but we will also be offering Medicare Advantage-Prescription Drug Program (“MA-PD”) products. Oscar’s move into the MA-PD space will require that we develop a fully functional, Medicare Compliance Program that meets the standards set by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (“CMS”). The Associate Director, Medicare Compliance will assume primary responsibility for designing, establishing, and then operating this Medicare Compliance Program. Based either in Oscar’s Tempe office (the Oscar Health Hub) or in our New York headquarters, the Associate Director, Medicare Compliance will report to the Vice President, Compliance, forming an integral part of Oscar’s Compliance and MA teams.
In your first six weeks, you will:
- Familiarize yourself with Oscar’s departments and functions, identifying current operational processes that can be leveraged for MA-PD compliance
- Map all MA-PD compliance obligations set by CMS, ranking them by importance and operational risk
By the end of month 3, you will:
- Develop a work plan for building a Medicare Compliance Program, for full implementation - ideally as of November 1, 2020
- Beginning with the highest-risk areas, begin implementing this work plan across all of Oscar’s departments and functions
- Identify and quantify additional resources that Oscar will need to deploy or acquire to ensure compliance with all CMS requirements
Afterwards and on an ongoing basis, you will:
- Ensure that Oscar has a fully functional Medicare Compliance Program as of July 31, 2019 and afterward
- Oversee and validate Oscar’s MA-PD submissions to CMS, including audit universes, Plan Reporting, and Medicare Data Validation content
- Prepare Oscar for CMS and delegated audits and surveys, including One-Third Financial Audits, Full Program Audits, timeliness reviews, and Part D audits
- Cooperate with Oscar’s financial, clinical, data, and technology functions to ensure that Part D Financial Reporting obligations are operationalized
- Ensure that HPMS memos and all other CMS transmissions are digested, disseminated, and operationalized across Oscar’s functions
- Establish productive relationships with Oscar’s regulators at CMS, including the assigned Account Manager
- Anticipate Compliance Program needs at all Oscar locations, contributing to auditing and monitoring activity where necessary, and suggesting additions to the annual Compliance Work Plan
- Chart a path forward to personal growth as a Compliance professional in a dynamic, fast-paced organization
