Northeastern Oklahoma residents will have the opportunity to share their health care experiences and concerns next week at the fifth of Oklahomans for Health Care Reform’s ongoing town hall meetings throughout the state.
Oklahomans for Health Care Reform kicked off the series in Noble in July.
The format in Broken Arrow will be open, with audience members sharing their stories and suggesting solutions to make Oklahomans healthier and provide better access to care.
Oklahomans for Health Care Reform is an alliance of consumers, small businesses, patient advocates, medical professionals and others who are sick and tired of seeing health insurance companies deny care and kill life-saving legislation.
Oklahomans for Health Care Reform seeks to draw attention to the need for increased oversight of the under-regulated industry and greater fairness in how it treats policyholders.
Oklahomans for Health Care Reform is nonpartisan and focuses on state-specific solutions rather than waiting for Congress to act. The group was formed to provide a voice for regular Oklahomans in health care issues, advocate for health care change and promote projects and services for a healthier state.
Participants will include legislators; state agency personnel; small-business owners; patients, doctors and health care providers; and anyone who is interested in providing policymakers with reliable information for use in upcoming legislative sessions.
The town hall will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 26 at Northeastern State University-Broken Arrow in the second-floor ballroom, Building A.
Come share your stories and concerns.
