SoonerCare is designed to meet the needs of disabled and elderly individuals, paying for care within nursing homes as well as some personal care services. Covered populations in Oklahoma City include individuals who are 65 and older and individuals who are disabled or blind.

Medicaid Waivers in Oklahoma City

Home and Community Based Services Waivers

Oklahoma City residents may qualify for the state’s Medicaid waivers program, designated Home and Community Based Services Waivers. These waivers are meant to enable seniors to remain in their own homes or communities through subsidized services. Those services allow seniors to age in place in their own home while delaying admission to a nursing home. These waivers require individuals to meet financial, residential and level of care requirements. There are two in Oklahoma City: ADvantage and Medically Fragile.

ADvantage Waiver 

The ADvantage Waiver helps frail seniors over 65 who may face nursing home placement unless they receive in-home services. It covers the cost of services related to therapy, adult day cares, personal care needs, prepared meals, respite care and hospice. 

The Medically Fragile Waiver

The Medically Fragile Waiver is for individuals whose level of required care would otherwise mean hospitalization or nursing home placement. Medically Fragile waivers can cover cooked meals, prescriptions, hospice, respite, private nursing and therapy.

The Medicaid waivers program limits the number of individuals who receive aid for services each calendar year. Once that limit has been met, seniors are placed on a waiting list until a new slot opens. Seniors can apply online, in person or by printing forms to mail into the Oklahoma Department of Human Services. For additional information or to seek assistance in applying, call 1-800-435-4711 or visit the nearest DHS office.

To qualify, seniors must be over 60 and not capable of functioning independently within their own home but must not need 24/7 care. The current income maximum to qualify for complete coverage of adult day care costs is $868 per month. Individuals who earn more than that but less than $2,083 may be eligible for assistance with a portion of those costs. Applicants may apply online or through their nearest Adult Day Services Center.

In-Home Assistance Program
