Our Mission

The Health Alliance for the Uninsured is a catalyst for improved health care services for those who otherwise would be unable to obtain them.

Why We Do What We Do

Oklahoma Health Outcomes

  • Oklahoma is ranked 44th in overall health
  • Every 24 minutes, someone dies in the U.S. due to a lack of health insurance
  • 80 percent of Oklahomans who are uninsured are in working families
  • Oklahomans without health insurance have difficulty accessing medical, dental, vision, mental health, and preventative care

The Current Situation for the Uninsured in Oklahoma

Oklahoma is in a health crisis. 17 percent of our population is uninsured or underinsured.

In Oklahoma County, almost 1 in 4 are uninsured or underinsured. Uninsured individuals are less likely to receive preventive care and more likely to be hospitalized for conditions that could have been avoided.

They receive primary care – if at all – at safety net clinics or hospital emergency rooms (ERs), all of which are overwhelmed: 53 percent of emergency room visits in 2005 were non-emergency cases.

Our Vision
The Health Alliance for the Uninsured is to be a highly effective community organization that facilitates quality preventive and health care services to the medically underserved of Central Oklahoma.
