OKC Cares

Posted by: Greater Oklahoma City Chamber on Tuesday, September 4, 2012 at 12:00:00 am

If you're a resident of the City of Oklahoma City and you've ever taken a look at the utility bill – you know, the one that covers water, trash, etc. – you get from the City each month, you might have noticed a nominal fee ($3.65 to be exact) for a program called "Total Care." Total Care is an optional program for Oklahoma City residents which provides emergency medical transport without any out-of-pocket expenses. If you receive a bill from the City of Oklahoma City and it has this fee on it, you're a Total Care participant. Did you still find yourself thinking, "huh?" No worries. Here's what you need to know:

  • You're a resident of Oklahoma City if you pay your water bill to Oklahoma City. If you're not the bill-payer of the household, you can check out this map to see if your utilities are in Oklahoma City.
  • You and any permanent members of your household are provided with emergency medical transport through EMSA without any out of pocket expenses. (Did you know the charge for a single emergency ambulance ride is now more than $1,300? Whoa!)
  • Your Total Care membership covers expenses not paid by your third-party insurance.
  • Renters are eligible to participate. The owner of your house/apartment/duplex/etc. may have opted to not participate, but you can still sign up. If you want to sign up, call 396-2888.
  • You can opt out. In fact, September is the only month you can do so. All you have to do is call 297-2833.

Confused about whether or not you live in Oklahoma City? Oklahoma City is pretty vast. Even if your street address is Yukon, Edmond or Moore, you still might technically be an Oklahoma City resident. Check out this map. If you want more information on the City's Total Care program, click here. Think Total Care sounds like an awesome idea, but don't live in Oklahoma City? Contact your municipality to see if they offer a similar service!
