ONR Extra Medicaid Changes (2:34)

Featured in ONR Extras

State health officials estimate an additional 140 thousand Oklahomans will enroll in Medicaid when the new federal health care law takes effect. The projected cost is an additional 24 million dollars a year. The figures came from the state health care authority during the first meetings of lawmakers on how the new law will affect the state. The state health department also outlined the contributing factors to Oklahoma’s poor health rankings. The legislative committee plans four more meetings on health care and the new federal law, with the next meeting scheduled October 5 in Tulsa. Here is some of the testimony from the hearing on the house floor in this ONR Extra.

Living without AC (5:23)

Featured in Top Stories

The extreme heat brings a double dose of discomfort. Being outside in stifling temperatures is bad enough, but if you stay inside where it's air conditioned, soaring electric bills are the price you pay for relief. It's even worse for thousands of people who either lack air conditioning or have just enough to make one or two rooms livable. That means finding someplace, anyplace, to stay cool during the day and waiting until late in the evening for the house to cool off enough to get a night's sleep.

Student Health (4:55)

Featured in Top Stories

As classrooms begin to fill up this semester, students are bringing with them a number of health issues that will impact their ability to learn. They range from lack of sleep or poor nutrition to thoughts of suicide and substance abuse. These are all problems that may be noticed for the first time inside the school house. Oklahoma mental health officials tell us substance abuse, teen suicide and early sexual activity are stubborn problems that the state has shown little, if any, ability to deal with over the last several years.
