Beginning in April 2023, more than 350,000 Oklahomans were asked to update their eligibility information in order to maintain their SoonerCare coverage, which allows low-income Oklahomans to see a doctor and fill prescriptions.
Since then, 160,000 Oklahomans have lost coverage and more than 140,000 Oklahomans are at risk of losing coverage. Families with outdated information on file may be at risk of losing their SoonerCare health insurance even if they meet eligibility requirements.
On Wednesday, October 25 from 2 – 4 p.m. Together Oklahoma and the Oklahoma Policy Institute, along with regional community partners, will host a live-stream event called OK Wellness Watch on Facebook, YouTube, and from five different on-site locations.
OK Wellness Watch will highlight the importance of updating eligibility information and walk viewers through the process so SoonerCare participants can continue to receive high-quality, affordable healthcare.
For those who may no longer be eligible for SoonerCare, OK Wellness Watch will also provide information about how to get health insurance through the federal Marketplace, known as Healthcare.gov.
Additionally, a panel of community members will discuss the work they do to make sure people across the state have access to care.
Oklahomans who have lost coverage or who are at risk of losing coverage in coming months should update their contact, employment, and income information at mysoonercare.org or by calling 800-987-7767 and answering a few simple questions over the phone. The process takes about five minutes for most people.

- Great Plains Improvement Foundation, 2 SE Lee Blvd., Suite 100, Lawton;
