OHCA CEO Nico Gomez Comments On Leavitt Partners Report
“First, I would to thank Leavitt Partners for their work. Their ability to turn around such an enormous undertaking in a short timeframe is a testament to their expertise.
Where do we go from here? Well, the Oklahoma Health Care Authority will be reviewing the SoonerCare evaluation piece to look for ways to improve our program. We will also be taking the full report to state leadership.
I believe it is important that we allow our state’s leaders time to process all the information, analysis and recommendations that have been offered. SoonerCare and Insure Oklahoma are critically important to the health and economy of the state, and the significance of the decisions that will be made should be given their due diligence.
I, as well as the staff of the Oklahoma Health Care Authority, look forward to working with state leadership in our effort to provide the citizens of Oklahoma access to quality, affordable health coverage.”
