Healthy Neighborhood Overlay Does not Benefit North Tulsa

Posted by Lturner_NTEDi on April 11, 2018 at 4:40 PM Comments comments (305)

The question that the City Council and the Community Leaders should continue to ask, what would people in the community do if the small discount stores had chosen not to make an investment in the community. We are not against a full service store, we need several in the north Tulsa community. However, if the same items sold are unhealthy if sold in a small discount store, than perhaps you can explain to us why they are healthier if sold in a full service store.

A moratorium in north Tulsa would result in a suspension of business development activity (stores, etc.) in certain areas of north Tulsa.

A moratorium in Tulsa would not demonstrate that the City is concerned about economic development, building the workforce and healthier communities in the near future.

A moratorium in north Tulsa does not support revitalization plans for the north Tulsa community that residents have been involved in for the past 10 years are more.

Amongst the highest priorities that municipalities should be concerned with is creating jobs, improving the tax base.

A moratorium in north Tulsa does not support the creation of jobs or building wealth in the north Tulsa community.

A moratorium in north Tulsa disrupts the communities ability advocate for the creating and attracting desirable business into the north Tulsa community; a moratorium does not inspire economic growth.

Misrepresentation - NTEDi Involvment

Misrepresentation NTEDi Involvement - Ongoing communication around naming of the 36th North Corridor.

It is with great consideration for all impacted in the community of Tulsa that we publish this communication:  The NTEDi organization does not desire to be misrepresented; yet, there continues to be some misrepresentation of NTEDi. NTEDi is requesting that individuals(s) and/or organizations refrain from including NTEDi name in communications related to 36th North Corridor naming efforts unrelated to NTEDi. NTEDi is not involved in efforts to rename the 36th North Corridor to Phoenix District. Which NTEDi refers to as the phase 2 process (Naming 36th North Corridor). The phase 2 continue to be pursued by a community representative in the community.

NTEDi has communicated to a large number of individuals that upon completing phase 1; NTEDi work related to Naming 36th North Corridor, was concluded. NTEDi membership was informed that the phase 1 name selected was not available. Therefore, NTED decided not to pursue any Re-Naming efforts of 36th North Corridor. NTEDi had taken a formal vote not to participate in pursuing naming the 36th North Corridor and it passed unanimously.

If in the future we are asking that reference of NTEDi, related to naming 36th North Corridor cease. Please contact an NTEDi Officer if you would like to seek permission to include NTEDi names in issues related to this particular matter.

We are very excited about the opportunities in north Tulsa and NTEDi will continue to remain focused on work related to our priorities and goals. We are even more excited about the volunteerism of our members and the support we continue to receive from partnering agencies.

NTEDi wishes everyone success in endeavors they are taken to benefit the community.

Organization Hiring Navigators to help Oklahomans Learn about Federal Health Insurance Law

Organizations hiring navigators to help Oklahomans learn about federal health insurance law


September 01, 2013 - 12:58 pm EDT


TULSA, Oklahoma — Organizations are hiring dozens of navigators to help Oklahomans learn about the new federal health care law.


Officials with organizations that have received federal grants say they are confident navigators will be ready by Oct. 1, when citizens can begin enrolling in health insurance plans under the Affordable Care Act.


The Tulsa World reports ( ) navigators will be trained to help citizens shop for and enroll in health insurance plans, including how to use websites where they can compare plans, called exchanges.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced last month it was awarding $67 million nationally for navigator training, including $1.6 million to three groups in the state.


Little Dixie Action Agency received $580,000. The nonprofit, which has a budget of about $25 million, coordinates anti-poverty programs.

Affordable Care Act

Posted by Lturner_NTEDi on August 31, 2013 at 5:20 PM Comments comments (27)

The 'Affordable Care Act' summary gives the most factual representation of the bill by breaking it down into its simplest form.

What is the Affordable Care Act?

The Affordable Care Act, or ACA, is a long, complex piece of legislation that attempts to reform the healthcare system. Summarizing the Affordable Care Act means giving a basic overview of what each section is about. We have a condensed version of the law available to download and many other pages that explain aspects of the law and how they affect you.

This Summary of the ACA will help you get a quick idea of what exactly is in The Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) and what it does for Americans like you.

Affordable Care Act Summary

First off, the way a law works is it is broken down into titles and each title is broken down into sections. We will just give a summary of the title itself and what is implied within those sections.


The first title states that the Affordable Care Act puts individuals, families and small business owners in control of their own healthcare.

The Affordable Care Act reduces costs of premiums to millions of families and small businesses and provides billions dollars in tax relief – the largest middle class tax cut for health care in history.

The Affordable Care Act also reduces what most people will pay for healthcare by capping out of pocket expenses and requiring all preventative care to be fully-covered and without cost to the individual.

Nothing in the Bill forces any American to have healthcare or to drop their current healthcare plan.

There will be a competitive insurance market and all Americans will be able to choose their insurance out of these plans. Since everyone will have access to the same care through the Affordable Care Act it helps to ensure that all Americans receive quality healthcare. Those wishing to purchase private health insurance will be able to do so and receive the same care available today.

Since all Americans will pay into the Affordable Care Act, the insurance exchange will pool buying power allowing individuals to afford private insurance plans. These plans will have to compete for your business, thus helping to regulate cost and quality.

Small business owners will be able to purchase their own coverage, and will receive tax credits for up to 50% of the cost of their employees’ health insurance making it easier to give their employees benefits.

Insurance companies cannot deny coverage based off of pre-existing medical conditions and can make an appeal if an insurance company refuse doctor ordered treatments.
