OHA continues efforts to bring federal funds to our state for health care

Posted on: 10/17/18

OHA’s ongoing efforts to educate Oklahomans about the importance of accepting federal funds to cover the uninsured (Medicaid expansion) have included several important activities recently. Read an OHA op-ed that appeared last Friday in the Oklahoman: “Accepting Federal Funds Makes Good Business Sense for Oklahoma.” This op-ed was written in response to a recent Oklahoman editorial on Medicaid expansion, available here. OHA felt it was important to respond to the inaccurate information in the Oklahoman editorial.

In addition, OHA participated in the Oklahoma State Chamber Health Summit last week, where we hosted Dr. Bryce Ward, an economist, presenting “The economic impact of Medicaid expansion in Montana” as a part of our session on the business case for accepting federal funds. See the related article below for a summary and to view Dr. Ward’s excellent presentation.

Watch for more resources from OHA that you can use in your community around this important issue. (Patti Davis)
