This year, Oklahoma lawmakers have the opportunity to bring Oklahomans the health care they need. SB 605, authored by Sen. McCortney, represents an important first step in the discussion about expanding access to health insurance in Oklahoma. SB 605 is up for a vote in the Senate Retirement and Insurance committee TODAY at 10am. Please call committee members and ask them to vote YES on SB 605.If Oklahoma accepts federal dollars to expand access to insurance:
- More than 100,000 Oklahomans, mostly low-income working adults, will get to see a doctor, fill a prescription, and get regular treatment for a mental illness or addiction
- Fewer Oklahoma families will be at risk of financial ruin due to a single health care emergency or a chronic medical condition
- Dozens of rural hospitals and other struggling health care providers will be on more stable financial footing

SB 605 is the start of a good-faith effort to bring Oklahomans’ tax dollars back to get our family members, friends, and neighbors the health insurance they need. Please call members of the Senate Retirement and Insurance Committee this morning and ask them to vote YES on SB 605.
