Insurance companies have been making major moves into telehealth as the COVID-19 pandemic drives rapid adoption of virtual care. Insurance startup Oscar Health launched a $0 Virtual Primary Care last year. That platform offers a slew of digital and in-home services to its individual and family plan members in 10 markets, including Houston, Miami, New York City and Los Angeles, at no cost, the company said. Insurance giant Cigna plans to acquire telehealth platform MDLive. The insurer has been a longtime partner of and an investor in MDLive and will fold it into its Evernorth subsidiary, which houses its health services business. The deal is expected to close in the second quarter of 2021, pending regulatory approvals. The deal to acquire Zipnosis comes one week after Bloomberg reported that the company plans to go public. Bright Health plans to raise at least $1 billion in an IPO as soon as late in the second quarter, according to Bloomberg, citing people with knowledge of the matter.
