Contract Health Service Workgroup Recommendations
Posted on the IHS Director's Blog in May 2013

I recently sent a letter [Link to IHS PDF - 49KB] with enclosure [Link to IHS PDF - 34KB] to Tribes providing an update on the ongoing tribal consultation to improve the Indian Health Service Contract Health Services (CHS) program, which is the funding we use to pay for referrals and services in the private sector. I shared the third set of recommendations from the Director's Workgroup on Improving CHS.  One of the outcomes of the workgroup was a recommendation to keep the CHS distribution formula for new funding increases the same, and to protect base CHS funding.  Comments on the recommendations are welcome at consultation@ihs.gov.
