The Future of Health Care in Oklahoma

States have until December 14th to decide whether to create their own health insurance exchanges under the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. 16 states and the District of Columbia are setting up their own exchanges and five states are going to work with the federal government in doing it. States that don't establish their own system will see the federal government set one up for them. Oklahoma is one of those states. Governor Mary Fallin has turned thumbs-down on two key Obamacare provisions, the exchange and medicaid expansion, and today, we discuss what that decision means for health care in Oklahoma, with our guests: Julie Cox-Kain, Chief Operating Officer for the Oklahoma State Department of Health; Andrew Rice, former state senator and Executive Director of the Variety Care Foundation; Dr. David Holden, an orthopedic surgeon from Oklahoma City; and Dr. Boyd Shook, an internal medicine physician in Edmond.
