OKLAHOMA CITY - An alternative plan to provide health coverage to uninsured Oklahomans would require most recipients to work and make modest co-payments.
A draft copy of the bill shows it could apply to Oklahomans who earn up to 138 percent of the federal poverty level, or $31,000 for a family of four.

State health officials estimate the plan could help cover $150,000 of Oklahoma's uninsured.
It would also require a waiver from the federal government.
Gov. Mary Fallin previously rejected an expansion of Medicaid, but a spokesman said Tuesday the governor is interested in "other options" to provide coverage to the uninsured.
