据CNBC报道，美国著名保险创企Oscar Health再度成功融资1.65亿美元，企业市值也达到32亿美元。Alphabet的Capital G投资公司、Verily生命科学公司、Founders Fund等多家机构参与了本次融资。
此外，Oscar Health目前还对最新投资者之一的Verily公司敞开了合作大门。Verily是一家隶属于Alphabet集团的健康科技公司，目前正忙于多家潜在合资企业的洽谈工作。而保险或许可以成为这些计划中的一部分，这样看来，Verily的确可以算作Oscar Health一个潜在的具有重大战略意义的投资合作伙伴。

Oscar Health, the startup run by Josh Kushner (yes, brother of Jared), has raised $165 million at a reported valuation of $3.2 billion, CNBC’s Christina Farr reports. The funding comes from Alphabet’s Capital G investment company and Verily life sciences corporation, Founders Fund and others.
Oscar’s goal is to outpace existing industry-leading insurers, including UnitedHealth and Aetna, with an emphasis on mobile technology, including an appointment booking app and other tools for encouraging engaged consumers across its platform.
The startup seemed to be in some potential trouble because of its focus providing an insurance marketplace for Affordable Care Act beneficiaries, but the company has changed its model to one in which customers are charged higher premiums, and with closer relationships with a select group of care providers to help them work out more competitive pricing.
Per CNBC, Oscar Health also left the door open for potential partnerships with one of its newest investors, Verily. The Alphabet-owned healthtech company has a number of potential ventures it’s working on, and insurance could feature in a few of those plans, so this could turn out to be a very strategic investor partner.
