MEDATS (generally called “MDL”) is a system within IMS used by OHCA’s Level of Care Evaluation Unit (LOCEU) to communicate with OKDHS workers. The system is for: disability decisions, DDS home based waivers, ICF-IID (Intermediate Care Facility – Individual with an Intellectual Disability) medical eligibility, transfer from an ICF-IID to and emergency services for ineligible/illegal aliens.
To access the MEDATS MDL screen:
- Log into IMS
- Clear the screen
- Type MDL case number and press ‘enter’.
The MEDATS MDL screen will appear.

A complete application is when LOCEU receives fully completed paperwork, such as a Medical Social Summary or email requesting alien emergency medical.
