ONR Extra Health Care Law

Featured in ONR Extras

A legislative panel exploring the impact of the federal health care law on Oklahoma is expected to recommend development of some type of health care exchange--but only to the minimum extent necessary to comply with the Affordable Health Care Act. The joint committee on federal health care law heard testimony this week on non-profit clinics and health exchanges, where residents could shop for and buy health insurance. The federal law requires states to have a health care exchange set up by 2014. Here is more of that testimony in this ONR Extra.

Anyone whose income is 50% or less above the poverty line falls into the near poor category, just an illness or job loss away from living in poverty. One in three Oklahomans already live below the poverty line and now growing numbers of others are falling into the near poor category - making too much money for government assistance but not enough to pay the bills.
