Mission Statement: To improve access, quality and utilization of health care for pregnant women and children in SoonerCare.
Pregnancy services are offered to qualified Oklahoma women to increase the likelihood of a healthy pregnancy and birth. Regular prenatal care is important in order to monitor how the pregnancy is going and it also helps spot any potential health problems before they become serious.
How to Apply
Request an application to be mailed to you by calling from your local OKDHS county office. You may also make an appointment to visit their offices. The OKDHS workers will assist you in gathering the needed information and applying for SoonerCare benefits.
- You will receive an approval/denial letter letting you know whether you will receive SoonerCare, if you need to turn in more documentation or if your application has been denied.
- If approved, you will need to choose a Primary Care Physician (PCP) right away (please see Choosing a PCP section below) and make an appointment to begin or continue your prenatal care.
- If approved, you will receive a SoonerCare I.D. Card. Take this card with you every time you take your child to the doctor.
Some services may need a referral, prior approval by your doctor, or small copay.
