Who Qualifies for Medicare in Oklahoma?

Medicare covers most Oklahoma residents who are age 65 or older, and it also covers disabled Oklahoma residents. In general, Medicare enrollment in Oklahoma works the same way as it does in the rest of the country. If you qualify, Original Medicare Part A and Part B will help cover your health costs.

Once you have Medicare eligibility, you can begin choosing a new health plan through a Medicare Advantage Plan, Medigap plan, and/or a Medicare Part D drug plan.
