Organizational Culture

The Oklahoma Health Care Authority operates similarly to any private insurance carrier. We do not provide direct patient care, but rather contract with various providers (e.g., physicians, nurses, hospitals, etc) to provide services to our members and to our providers. Visit our members and providers sections for more information on SoonerCare (Oklahoma Medicaid).
