Fast Fact

Medicaid serves 56 million poor Americans. That's 597,365 Oklahomans. Children are 67% of those served. For more facts go to the Oklahoma Health Care Authority's website and click on "Fast Facts" in the lower right hand corner.

Lt. Governor-Elect Jari Askins campaigned on a platform of improved health care and promised us a children's cabinet to look at issues that directly impact our youngest citizens. This would be a good place to start - improving the health care of these 400,779 children.
