APA WF# 21-15 Ensuring Access to Medicaid Act
These rule changes were previously approved by the OHCA Board of Directors and the Governor and are currently in effect as emergency rules. Due to Oklahoma Statutes, these rules must be taken through the permanent rulemaking process.
The proposed policy changes will comply with Senate Bill 131 (SB131), otherwise known as the "Ensuring Access to Medicaid Act" by addressing the specific requirements that are outlined throughout the bill. The requirements include, but are not limited to, enrollment and voluntary enrollment into a managed care delivery model, developing specific network adequacy standards, prior authorization requirements, and developing requirements for appeals and hearings.
