Current Services

Purchased and Referred Care (PRC)

Purchased/Referred Care (PRC) is health care purchased by the Indian Health Service (IHS) from non IHS providers and facilities when direct services of care are not available.

PRC funds are used in situations where:

  • No IHS direct care facility exists.
  • The direct care facility cannot provide the required emergency or specialty care.
  • The direct care facility has an overflow of medical care workload.

PRC is limited to services that are medically indicated within the established medical priorities. See links below for more information.
