All but lost in the regular session’s acrimonious final hours was a massive change in Oklahoma’s health care for the working poor. The Legislature passed and Gov. Kevin Stitt signed legislation that outsources management of Medicaid, even though the current state-run system, administered by the Oklahoma Health Care Authority, is widely heralded as one of the nation’s most efficient.
