What is the SoonerSelect Program in Oklahoma? How Can I Enroll?

What is SoonerSelect?

Norman Regional is here to help you and your family navigate the changes to Oklahoma’s SoonerCare.

SoonerCare, Oklahoma's Medicaid program, is rolling out a new healthcare program called SoonerSelect that will offer more Oklahomans the chance to receive quality healthcare.

Most SoonerCare members will get their health care services covered in a new way through health and dental plans known as SoonerSelect.

SoonerSelect represents a change in healthcare delivery for Oklahomans. It's a system designed to improve the coordination of health and dental care, enhancing the quality of services received by members. SoonerSelect provides SoonerCare health benefits through contracted arrangements between state Medicaid agencies, health plans, and dental plans.

This program, operated by the Oklahoma Health Care Authority (OHCA), partners with various health and dental plans to offer comprehensive health benefits for SoonerCare members.

All health and dental plans will provide coverage to SoonerSelect members in all 77 Oklahoma counties.

Enrolling in SoonerSelect

Enrollment involves selecting a health and dental plan that aligns with your needs. You can compare the benefits of each plan online, and if you don't choose, a plan will be assigned to you. To enroll and check eligibility, visit or call the SoonerCare Helpline at (800) 987-7767.

Selecting the Plan that's Right for You

Health and dental plans come with their own provider networks. It’s essential to seek care from a provider within your plan's network, which includes primary care providers (PCPs) and primary care dentists (PCDs).

Your PCP can be a doctor, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant, and you have the flexibility to choose as long as they’re part of your plan's network. PCPs are responsible for overseeing your overall health, coordinating your healthcare needs, and making referrals to specialists when necessary.

A PCD specializes in dental care and manages your dental health needs, coordinates dental care requirements, and refers you to dental specialists when required. If you already have a preferred doctor or healthcare provider you'd like to continue seeing, a SoonerCare specialist can assist you in selecting a plan that allows you to retain your current provider.

You have the option to select from three health plans with health coverage starting April 1, 2024:

Norman Regional accepts all three insurance plans.

Additionally, you can choose from two dental plans with dental coverage starting Feb. 1, 2024DentaQuest or LIBERTY Dental. Your dental plan covers medically necessary cleanings, preventive and restorative dental care, and includes medically necessary orthodontic services for children under 21.

Choosing a Primary Care Provider

Each plan in SoonerSelect has a network of providers. To continue seeing your current Norman Regional provider, ensure you are including Norman Regional in your chosen plan’s network. Provider directories are available on each plan’s website to help in this decision. Be sure to look for a Norman Regional provider.
