Chronic Condition Executive Summaries

The executive summaries provide the Oklahoma Health Care Authority, associated stakeholders and the public, information and data about the prevalence of select chronic conditions and expenditures for members enrolled in the SoonerCare program. Data for the reports are extracted from the Medicaid Management Information System, a large repository of health care service claims, enrollment information and costs for services provided to enrolled members. Claims data from the MMIS allows OHCA to assess the care delivered to members across the spectrum of the health care system.

In each executive summary, the term “members” refers to individuals enrolled in the SoonerCare program. SoonerCare improves the health of qualified Oklahomans by ensuring that medically necessary benefits and services are available. Qualifying Oklahomans include certain low-income children, seniors, individuals who are disabled, those being treated for breast or cervical cancer and those seeking family planning services. 

The data provided in these reports may be conservative due to use of claims data. Members are only identified as having the select chronic condition if they sought care and had at least two or more paid claims that included a diagnosis code for the select chronic condition.
