SoonerPlan is the family planning program for Oklahoma residents who do not qualify for full SoonerCare health insurance . The income levels for SoonerPlan are higher so that more men and women have access to various forms of contraception and education. In order to qualify, you must be a U.S. citizen or legal resident, live in Oklahoma, and have income less than or equal to 185 percent of the federal poverty level.
The program covers birth control supplies and procedures, and other related services. As long as you are using some type of birth control, services through SoonerPlan are free. SoonerPlan offers coverage on family planning services only, and does not cover other types of physician or hospital care covered by different Medicaid programs.
Those who qualify for SoonerPlan must be resident Oklahomans age 19 and older who are not pregnant and do not intend to get pregnant. Pregnant women whose SoonerCare maternity coverage has been exhausted are eligible for family planning when their coverage ends 60 days after giving birth. Also, if you are eligible for full SoonerCare benefits, you can choose to only have coverage through SoonerPlan, with the option of applying for the comprehensive program at any time. You may apply for family planning services even if you have Medicare or any other creditable coverage, as long as you meet the income criteria.
