About Us

The Oklahoma Health Care Authority (OHCA) administers two health programs for the state. The first is SoonerCare, Oklahoma's Medicaid program. SoonerCare works to improve the health of qualified Oklahomans by ensuring that medically necessary benefits and services are available. Qualifying Oklahomans include certain low-income children, seniors, the disabled, those being treated for breast and cervical cancer and those seeking family planning services. The second program OHCA operates is Insure Oklahoma, which assists qualifying adults and small business employees in obtaining health care coverage for themselves and their families.

Strategic Plan

The Strategic Plan is designed to report priorities identified by the OHCA’s board. This part of the report includes a comprehensive discussion of the current operating environment and any projected issues that may affect the SoonerCare (Oklahoma Medicaid) program such as federal regulations, the uninsured, political climate and economic indicators. Updates of ongoing action plans are also presented. The Strategic Plan provides a road map for the agency’s forward motion.

The Service Efforts and Accomplishments (SEA) Performance Report is included with the Strategic Plan. It is constructed to report outcomes of OHCA’s efforts to achieve its mission, goals and objectives. Part of this process is defining standard performance measures indicating both quality and quantity; this has the benefit of also providing management expectations. The SEA report allows management to compare past, current and targeted performance measures to identify successes, challenges and opportunities. The report identifies how each measure is related to the agency’s goals and objectives, as well as relevant factors affecting outcomes.


Core Functions

The agency core function summary is a high-level, extremely simplified overview of each OHCA unit duties, responsibilities and contact information. The core function summary does not necessarily reflect all of the required or performed functions of each unit.

The core function summary also includes a count of currently filled full time positions. The full time equivalent (FTE) counts per unit do not reflect the division directors and support staff. Therefore, FTE counts per unit may not equal the total filled FTE per division. FTE counts per unit and filled FTE per division figures do not include vacant positions.
