Urgent Action Needed to Oppose Proposed Legislation
SMC administration has been advised that the Republican Caucus in the Oklahoma Senate will be voting Monday March 10 on SB 1495.
SMC and Beadles Nursing Home administration are working together to inform Alva residents that this legislation is bad for hospitals, bad for nursing homes, bad for Alva, and bad for Oklahoma.
If passed, this would allow for the outsourcing of the Oklahoma Medicaid program, or Medicaid Managed Care. The legislation would replace the existing effective SoonerCare program and eliminate existing federal tax dollars in the form of supplemental offset payments to Oklahoma hospitals and nursing homes.
All SMC supporters are encouraged to contact Senator Bryce Marlatt's office prior to Monday's vote, and urge him to OPPOSE SB 1495.
