Adults Can Apply for Medicaid Expansion at Variety Care

(June 30, 2021 – Oklahoma City, OK) Variety Care, Inc. is accepting SoonerCare patients. Now, eligible adults can be approved for SoonerCare benefits through Medicaid expansion at Variety Care. The state’s largest community health center offers Certified Application Counselors (CAC) across the Oklahoma City Metro, including Norman and Yukon, and rural locations to help Oklahomans apply.

“Variety Care is one of the best options in Oklahoma for patients seeking health care benefits through Medicaid expansion,” Variety Care CEO Lou Carmichael said. “Application difficulty often hinders eligible candidates from applying for benefits, creating another roadblock to health care. Variety Care removes these barriers by offering representatives at multiple health centers, conveniently located in underserved communities. Approvals are available within minutes providing patients immediate access to Variety Care providers across 16 locations.”
