OHCA Announces Mobile Friendly Application Website
Oklahoma City, OK – The Oklahoma Health Care Authority now offers a mobile-friendly version of MySoonerCare.org, Oklahoma’s Medicaid online enrollment portal. The secure website allows more Oklahomans to apply and renew their SoonerCare benefits from their smartphones.
With this update, users who may not have access to traditional computers can fill out and submit their application from anywhere.
“We are excited to offer this mobile site which will make it easier for applicants to access quality healthcare from their mobile devices,” said OHCA CEO, Kevin Corbett. "I am thankful for the countless hours of work OHCA staff spent on this project to make access to SoonerCare easier for Oklahomans."
Nearly 30% of attempted or completed applications received in July were done by Oklahomans using a smartphone. Before the update, applicants and members would navigate the application as they do with a traditional desktop browser, which resulted in having to log in and out or quit the application process until they could access a computer.
The change was not required by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services but was an OHCA initiative to help keep Oklahoma moving forward.
Oklahomans interested in applying for SoonerCare can apply at MySoonerCare.org or by calling 800-987-7767.
