EMPLOYER APPLICATION PROCESS
A business may apply online through the Employer Portal. Applications take up to 30 days to process, and employees must wait to apply until after the employer is approved.
Businesses may apply for Insure Oklahoma at any time. There are no enrollment periods or deadlines.
Employers are approved for 12-month periods, and will be renewed automatically each year as long as they continue to meet qualifications and maintain current account information with Insure Oklahoma.
Once a business is approved for Insure Oklahoma, each employee listed in the business’s Employer Portal account will be assigned an Employee Eligibility Number (EEN). Employers should distribute the EENs to the employees. Each employee may apply for Insure Oklahoma online and enter the EEN on the application. Employees who already have SoonerCare accounts may update their applications to include Insure Oklahoma and the EEN. Employees reapply every 11 months. In addition, it is the employers’ responsibility to educate employees on Insure Oklahoma guidelines for reporting all household members and all household income. If errors are found at a later date and monies are recouped, they will be recouped from the employer.
Some of the required information includes: Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN), qualified benefit plan ID number and final rate schedule, complete staff listing and banking information (for electronic funds transfer).
Please call 1-888-365-3742, option 2, for information on alternative documentation.
If the employer application is approved, employees listed as staff on the employer’s portal account will receive Employee Eligibility Numbers (EENs) to apply to Insure Oklahoma separately. Contracted employees and employees not currently on the payroll should not be included.
The employer contract will state the responsibilities of the parties involved. The document is required by the state of Oklahoma before any subsidy payments can be made.
This rate schedule is provided to the employer by the insurance carrier when they enter into the contract for group health plan coverage. Insure Oklahoma uses the schedule to determine the percentage Insure Oklahoma, the employer, and employees will be paying of the premium. The final rate schedule should: identify the applicable carrier and qualified health plan; list medical premiums separately from any other benefits, such as dental coverage or life insurance; and separate medical premiums by member unit (employee only, employee plus spouse, employee plus children, or family).
No. Insure Oklahoma will only deposit money to this account.
