Lori Kann, Oklahoma Healthcare Authority

Lori announced that starting July 1, 2015, incontinent supplies, diapers, pull-ups, disposable briefs and wipes, will not be covered under SoonerCare for children under the age of 21. Oklahoma has established a vendor, People First Industries. The child requesting incontinent supplies would need to take a form to the doctor and have it filled out. Then it would need to be faxed to OPI to start the process. (Flyer Attached)
