How Oklahoma's new health laws will affect you, from short-term health policies to eye clinics
November 10, 2019
At the beginning of November, hundreds of new laws took effect in Oklahoma, including a big change to short-term health policies.
Driven by rising premiums for Affordable Care Act plans, interest in short-term insurance is growing, boosted by Trump administration efforts to ease Obama-era restrictions that limited the duration of the plans to just three months. The Trump administration changed the rules to let consumers renew the policies for a total of three years’ coverage. Oklahoma lawmakers quickly passed legislation allowing it in the state during the 2019 legislative session.
