What is Medicaid for children in Oklahoma?

The Oklahoma State Children’s Health Insurance Program, or SCHIP:

"The State Children's Health Insurance Program, also known as SCHIP, provides health care coverage for uninsured infants, children and teen-agers in Oklahoma. Oklahoma and every state in the nation have this program. Your child is eligible for SCHIP if your family income meets a certain Federal guideline based on a higher income bracket than the traditional Medicaid program.

What is CHIP?

"Originally created in 1997, the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) is a state and federal partnership that provides low-cost health insurance coverage for children in families who earn too much income to qualify for Medicaid but cannot afford to purchase private health insurance coverage. States have considerable flexibility to establish income eligibility rules for CHIP, but children enrolling in the program must be otherwise uninsured."

Oklahoma Medicaid Waiver Programs

Medicaid Community Waivers in Oklahoma

"A waiver is a funding mechanism which allows the state to offer community-based services as an alternative to institutional services. The term waiver specifically refers to two elements of home and community-based services:

First, the state applies to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services for a special waiver or a special allowance from the services typically included in the State Medicaid Plan. This waiver allows the state to use Medicaid funds to provide alternative community supports for a targeted population who is at risk for institutionalization. Second, the individuals served waive the institutional services for which they are eligible in order to receive community-based supports.

The Oklahoma Department of Human Services (OKDHS), Developmental Disabilities Services Division (DDSD) currently operates four waiver programs. "
