Medicaid (known as SoonerCare in Oklahoma) is jointly funded by the federal and state government and provides health coverage to certain low-income individuals who qualify. The program is operated by the states and overseen at the federal level by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The Oklahoma Health Care Authority is the regulatory agency for SoonerCare.
Medicaid does not provide coverage to all low income people. It is available to children up to age 19, pregnant women, parents of dependent children, single parents transitioning from welfare to work, and individuals who are blind or have disabilities. Even the extremely poor do not qualify for Medicaid if they do not fit into certain eligibility categories.
