More than 1.2 million Oklahomans – 30% of the population – currently depend on Medicaid for health care coverage.

In this episode, OHCA Chief of Staff Ellen Buettner offers an in-depth look at the challenges facing the agency in its efforts to provide health care coverage and how Medicaid reform could impact the lives of Oklahoma’s most vulnerable populations.
