Oklahoma Health Insurance Exchange

A bill that defines the membership and appointment process for the Health Care for the Uninsured Board (HUB), which would oversee the implementation of a state Oklahoma health insurance exchange, was approved last week by a 51-34 vote in the House of Representatives. The bill now moves on to the Senate for debate. House Speaker Kris Steele noted that Oklahoma ranks fifth highest in the nation in the percentage of citizens without health insurance, and the state now has the opportunity to construct a system that will provide meaningful access to quality, affordable health insurance coverage. The Oklahoma legislature is expected to adjourn in late May.
