Uniting Physicians
and Patients

The Patient Choice Coalition was founded by Dan Chepkauskas, native of Muskogee, Oklahoma. Although the Coalition has been primarily in Texas for the past 18 years, Oklahoma NOW benefits from PCCOK (Patient  Choice Coalition of Oklahoma), the sister organization to PCCTX (Patient Choice Coalition of Texas). The sister organization PCCOK was formed in 2018 at the request of State Legislators. Those Legislators saw the successes in Texas and were passionate about Oklahoma benefiting as well. 

The Patient Choice Coalition of Oklahoma has its headquarters in Muskogee, Oklahoma and represents an IPA (Independent Physicians Association) of over 1000 Physicians, as well as individual Patients and Healthcare Facilities all across the State. A membership this diverse and large is able to provide numerous benefit
