OK SPA 22-0031 Former Foster Care Youth
The Oklahoma Health Care Authority will grant eligibility and enrollment to former foster care youth (FFCY) who were enrolled in Medicaid and who aged out of foster care (turned 18) in another state on or after January 1, 2023, and who now reside in the state of Oklahoma. This will bring Oklahoma into compliance with Section 1002 of federal law P.L. 115-271, the SUPPORT Act. Currently, and prior to the SUPPORT Act, Oklahoma was required to enroll only FFCY who were enrolled in Medicaid and who aged out of foster care within the state of Oklahoma.
