Purchased/Referred Care Rates Webinars for PRC Providers
IHS is hosting educational webinars on Purchased/Referred Care Rates for non-IHS doctors and health care administrators who provide services to American Indians and Alaska Natives through the PRC program. The purpose of the IHS PRC program is to purchase health care services from private health care providers, generally when the services are not available directly at IHS or Tribal health facilities.
