on Aging Staff
Coverage is now available through the Oklahoma Temporary High Risk Pool. Be sure to educate yourself about this new program so that you can make a fully in-formed decision before you enroll in the Oklahoma High Risk Pool (the state pool).
To qualify for the Oklahoma Temporary High Risk Pool, an individual must: Be a citizen of the United States, or lawfully present, Must have a preexisting medical condition, and Must have been uninsured for at least six months before applying for the
Oklahoma Temporary High Risk Pool.
The Oklahoma Temporary High Risk Pool coverage will not be subject to any pre-existing condition exclusion, and it will not impose a preexisting condition exclu-sion waiting period on a new enrollee. The State Pool, in contrast, must impose a 12-month preexisting condition exclusion waiting period on new enrollees who did not have creditable coverage in place during the six months prior to enrollment. This state pool exclusion period is fully waived if the enrollee had creditable cov-erage in place during the six months prior to enrollment.
