OKLAHOMA CITY–Thousands of Oklahomans who relay on the state to help with affordable health care could soon be losing their coverage.

The state was warned in May that if changes were not made to the “Insure Oklahoma” program to comply with the Affordable Care Act, federal funding for the program would end.

Recently, two senators attempted to make changes to Senate Bill 640.

However, it was not brought up before the end of the session.

Now, some lawmakers are wanting to call a special session to address the deadline.

They say if the Legislature does not act, more than 30,000 residents would lose their coverage.
