Physicians Needed for Medicaid Expansion


With the expansion of Medicaid in effect, the need for physicians to be a part of this program has increased significantly. Under the expanded Medicaid guidelines, adults ages 19-64 whose income is 138% or lower than the federal poverty level are eligible for coverage. For an individual, that is an income of about $17,796 a year, or $36,588 for a family of four. With an estimated 200,000 people eligible for this expanded coverage, more than 138,000 Oklahomans have already joined. Physicians are needed to serve this population. This will, in turn, enhance Oklahoma’s overall health outcomes. If you are not already a Medicaid provider and would like to become one, please go to the Oklahoma Health Care Authority provider enrollment page and sign up TODAY!
