SHO: Federal Funding for Services “Received Through” an IHS/Tribal Facility and Furnished to Medicaid-Eligible AI/AN


Today the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a letter to states and Tribes providing guidance updating our policy regarding the circumstances in which 100 percent federal funding would be available for services furnished to Medicaid-eligible American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN) through facilities operated by the Indian Health Service (IHS) or Tribes under the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act, P.L. 93-638. Through this letter, CMS is re-interpreting its payment policy with respect to services “received through” an IHS/Tribal facility, and is expanding the scope and nature of services that qualify for this matching rate.
