In a blog post on its website, Oscar Health said it was looking to expand or begin coverage in parts of Ohio, Texas, New Jersey, Tennessee and California and had also filed to continue selling health insurance to businesses, individuals and families in New York in 2018.

Major insurers have abandoned the program in some states due to uncertainty over whether the government will keep paying subsidies for the Obamacare individual health insurance system at a time when insurers must submit plans and premium rates for 2018. “We’re...
