OHCA Policies and Rules

317:30-5-1086. Eligible I/T/U providers

[Revised 09-01-16]

Indian Health Services, Tribal Programs, and Urban Indian Clinics (I/T/Us) are considered eligible for participation in the SoonerCare Program. To receive SoonerCare reimbursement, an I/T/U must be contracted as a provider with the Oklahoma Health Care Authority and appear on the IHS maintained listing of IHS-operated and Indian health care facilities under a 638 agreement. OHCA recognizes that I/T/Us are the payer of last resort, and are not considered creditable health insurance. It is the sole responsibility of the facility to petition IHS for placement on the list of facilities operating under a 638 agreement.
