ECOFHC is a Federally Qualified Health Center that depends upon the support of the community.  Please get involved by participating in fund raising and the educational programs that are offered to the patients.  ECOFHC promotes a tobacco free culture.  Every patient 13 years of age and older are queried regarding their tobacco use at each Provider encounter. No Vaping Allowed. For assistance, please call the Oklahoma Tobacco helpline at 1-800-784-8669.

I’d like to share information with you about Extra Help, a federally funded program that helps people on Medicare save an average of $4,000 a year on their Part D expenses and prescription medications. This program:

  1. Reduces or eliminates the Part D premium

  2. Reduces or eliminates the Part D annual deductible

  3. Reduces the copay for prescription drugs

  4. Eliminates the doughnut hole

  5. You can change plans at any time during the year, not only during open enrollment

We also can assist with filling out the applications for state funded Medical Assistance Plans that help with Medicare Part A and/or B premiums, deductibles, and co-pays.

In addition to help with prescriptions, we have information on preventive Health Services for people on Medicare. Medicare provides coverage for many tests, vaccinations  as well as well patient visits. These preventive services are covered for people of all incomes.

We have information on the new Medicare Cards.

I am glad to visit with you more about Extra Help. Give me a call at 405-522-3074 . Anyone interested in applying can do so by calling 405-521-2281.

211 Oklahoma is pleased to announce the official launch of its new website, designed to work on any device, and built around a powerful new search engine that makes it easier than ever for users to find what they need.  The 211OK website is quick and easy access to more than 10,000 services in the statewide 211 Oklahoma database.

The new site is location-aware and uses the location from your computer or mobile device (if enabled) to show results for all locations offering the searched service.  Starting a search is as easy as typing a need in the search bar.  We’ve also organized information in easy to navigate categories with common language names.  Results are statewide and can be narrowed to show services near the user. With a single click, users can call the agency, visit a website, or get directions. The site also has a Spanish translation feature.  Locations are plotted on an interactive map, allowing users to quickly see the services nearest them.
