SoonerCare was designed to be a safety net program to ensure that low-income families receive medical care. It is how we make sure that people living in poverty have access to a flu-shot, an inhaler or access to life-saving medication. SoonerCare was never designed to be a jobs program.
Unfortunately, the Oklahoma legislature is attempting to undermine this successful program and turn it into something it was never intended to be. HB 2932 would end SoonerCare coverage for low-income parents who fail to complete work requirements. This move would endanger the health of thousands of Oklahomans and put entire families at risk.
In this five-part series of videos, we examine why SoonerCare work requirements are harmful to Oklahoma families and bad for our state. Please watch and then contact Governor Fallin and ask her to veto HB 2932.
