Medicaid is a program designed to provide health care, long term care for the elderly and other health services to certain individuals and families who fit into one of the designated eligibility groups.  The Medicaid program is administered by each state, and is funded from Federal, State and sometimes local funds. In order for the state to receive Federal funding they must meet certain requirements, eligibility standards and scope of medical services.  Each state is given the flexibility to determine certain aspects of their Medicaid program.

In Oklahoma the Medicaid program is administered by the Oklahoma Health Care Authority (OHCA).  The Oklahoma Department of Human Services (DHS) is the agency responsible for taking individual applications and determining who is eligible for Medicaid, based on established eligibility criteria.
