SoonerCare Can Give Indian Health Care Services An Added Advantage
SoonerCare is Oklahoma’s Medicaid program. The tribal relations associate for SoonerCare is Katie Carden. Carden says more Native Americans and native veterans need to sign up because not only are there more services available for them to take advantage of, it will pay their tribal clinics for services received. In fact, SoonerCare is the third largest payer to Indian Health Service.
Katie Carden, a member of the Muscogee Creek Nation, wants Native Americans to sign up for SoonerCare.
