Sen. Brown comments on Oklahoma high risk pool covering gap in child-only insurance

Sen. Bill Brown Sen. Bill Brown

“I applaud Insurance Commissioner Doak and state legislative leaders who have worked diligently over the last year to address this gap and ensure access to health coverage for our youngest citizens.

As a father and grandfather, I know how important it is for infants to have proper medical care. The care they receive in their first year will impact them the rest of their lives. This is why it’s so imperative that we make sure all of Oklahoma’s babies have access to high quality medical care and that can only be possible through having proper health coverage.

There is still work to be done to improve access to health coverage for Oklahoma’s youth, but this is a great start.”

Brown serves as the Chair of the Senate Retirement and Insurance Committee.
