Pain Management Program

The SoonerCare Pain Management Program is a program designed to equip SoonerCare providers with the knowledge and skills to appropriately treat members with chronic pain. To accomplish this, the Oklahoma Health Care Authority (OHCA) has developed a proper prescribing toolkit. Two practice facilitators will be delegated to implement the components of the toolkit within selected SoonerCare practices. Additionally, two behavioral health resource specialists will be dedicated to assist providers with linking members with substance use disorder, or other behavioral health needs, to the appropriate treatment. 


Below is an electronic version of the toolkit, which is available for download. As it is a living document, toolkit updates will be made a few times each year. Please check back periodically to ensure you have the most current version with the most up-to-date information.
