Medicaid (known as SoonerCare in Oklahoma) is a state/federal program that pays for medical services for low-income pregnant women, children, individuals who are elderly or have a disability, parents and women with breast or cervical cancer. To qualify, these individuals must meet income and other eligibility requirements. 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.

On June 30, 2020, the Oklahoma Medicaid Expansion Initiative, State Question 802, passed by a majority vote to expand Medicaid eligibility to adults ages 19-64 whose income is 138% (133% with a 5% disregard) of the federal poverty level or lower. This equates to an estimated annual income of $17,796 for an individual or $36,588 for a family of four.
