Medicare Cost Sharing and Third Party Liability

SoonerCare pays only the deductibles and a portion of the co-insurance when any of the above items are covered by Medicare. OHCA also pays the monthly Medicare Part B premium for SoonerCare members age 65 or older and for certain blind or disabled persons. If an eligible person has other medical insurance, that insurance company must be billed before SoonerCare is billed.
