     1. Check if you're eligible for  Medicaid/SoonerCare: Medicaid/SoonerCare provides free or low-cost health insurance to eligible individuals and families in Oklahoma. You may qualify based on your income and other factors

     2. Consider employer-sponsored insurance: Your employer may offer health care as a benefit, check with your HR department to see if this is an option.

     3. Check the Health Insurance Marketplace: The Health Insurance Marketplace, also known as Obamacare, or ACA (Affordable Care Act) allows individuals and families to compare and purchase health insurance plans in Oklahoma. With the advantages of the Affordable Care Act, you may be eligible for financial assistance to help pay for your premiums. It is best to partner with a local agent that knows the plans available in your area and can help you pick the best plan to fit your budget and circumstance.

     4. Consider short-term health insurance: Short-term health insurance plans in Oklahoma can provide coverage for a limited time, usually up to 12 months. These plans may be a good option if you're in between jobs or waiting for other coverage to begin. Again, partner with a local health insurance agent to help you with this option.

     5. Look into catastrophic health insurance with a local health insurance agent: Catastrophic health insurance plans cover major medical events, such as hospitalizations and surgeries. These plans usually have lower premiums but higher deductibles.

     6. Shop around for the best rates: Don't be afraid to shop around and compare low-cost health insurance plans from different providers. Compare premiums, deductibles, and coverage options to find the best plan for you. Generally, a local, independent agent is contracted with multiple insurance companies and can help you shop to see what’s best for you

     7. Consider a health savings account (HSA): If you choose a high-deductible health plan, you may be eligible for an HSA. These accounts allow you to save money tax-free to pay for medical expenses. A local health insurance agent will have options to help you set up an HSA.

     8. As mentioned, partner with a local health insurance agent: in todays world it is easy to shop on line, however there are so many little details involved when choosing the right health insurance for you and your family. Do not get caught off guard and purchase the wrong policy that does not provide proper coverage.

     9. Don't forget about dental and vision insurance: Health insurance plans in Oklahoma  probably do not cover dental and vision services and if they do, the plan is limited when it comes to dental and vision. Consider adding separate dental and vision insurance plan to maximize your coverage.

     10. Stay up to date on open enrollment: Open enrollment is the period of time when you can enroll in or make changes to your health insurance plan. There are also Special Enrollment Periods (SEP) that will allow you to enroll outside of open enrollment. Check with your agent or HR department to check if you’re eligible for a SEP.
