    Tornados. Floods. Fires. Spring weather in Oklahoma can be extreme! Here are some tips to help you prepare for an emergency:

    •  Make a list of all your medications, including non-prescription (over-the-counter) medicine. 
    •  Take pictures of your medications and their labels.

    •  Keep extra medical supplies such as test strips, needles and syringes on hand.
    •  Place your medication in a sealable bag or container. (If possible, keep them in their original containers with their original labels. )
    •  If you have medication that needs to be refrigerated, decide how you will store them.  
    • Write down your SoonerCare member ID number and the name(s) and phone number(s) for your doctor and pharmacy. Store this information along with your medications. 

    Have questions about your prescription medication? Call the SoonerCare Pharmacy Help Desk at 1-800-522-0114 option 4.

    Tips to Keep Kids Hydrated

    Drinking water has many health benefits. Water helps to flush toxins from your body and prevent dehydration. Dehydration can cause headaches, tiredness and lack of focus. These symptoms make it harder for them to perform their best.

    Getting kids to drink water can be hard, but here are a few tips you can use to help them meet their daily needs:

    • Encourage your child to drink water in the morning and regularly during the day, especially at mealtime.
    • Many fruits and vegetables contain water, so include them as a regular part of their diet.
    • Set the example! Let your child see you drink water so they are encouraged to do the same.

    Keep in mind the amount of water your child needs depends on age, weight, gender and whether or not they play sports. Talk to his or her doctor to determine how much water your child should drink every day.
