Understanding and Utilizing Health Care Resources on the Flathead Indian Reservation

Project Term: 24 months; 2015-2017
Grant Amount: $100,000

The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes (CSKT) Tribal Health Department seeks to accomplish three objectives with this grant: (1) Pursuant to public law 638 assume the Indian Health Service budget for purchased and referred care and tribally manage this program. This will vastly expand the available resources to cover services not available on the reservation; (2) enroll eligible members in Medicaid now that Montana’s Medicaid expansion has been approved, and enroll those above the Medicaid income thresholds in private insurance on the exchange; and (3) educate providers that see CSKT members on this new coverage approach, and educate patients on how to effectively use coverage.
