How to Find Affordable Health Insurance in the State of Oklahoma
SoonerCare is Oklahoma's Medicaid health coverage program for low-income citizens of Oklahoma (at or below 100% of the Federal Poverty Level).
Five programs are offered under SoonerCare. They include SoonerCare Standard with family planning service coverage for adults, pregnant women and children under 19; SoonerCare Standard for non-disabled adults with children under 19; SoonerCare Standard for the disabled; SoonerCare Standard for those living in institutions; and Mental Health and Substance Abuse Program.
SoonerCare Supplemental helps low-income people 65 or older, or under 65 with disabilities, pay for their insurance premiums and deductibles, and their prescription drugs. Income guidelines apply.
For those who do not qualify for SoonerCare, SoonerPlan is available for men and women whose income is at or below 185% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL). This program covers family planning health care services such as pregnancy tests and PAP smears, tubal ligations and vasectomies for women and men over 21, and birth control.
Breast and Cervical Care Treatment Program offers uninsured women under 65 breast and cervical cancer diagnosis services and treatment. Women who have no insurance to cover these types of treatments and who do not qualify for SoonerCare coverage can apply for help through this program.
Children 20 and under can receive medical, vision, dental and hearing healthcare services through the Child Health Program. These services are free for children enrolled in a SoonerCare health insurance program.
