Understanding and Utilizing Health Care Resources on the Flathead Indian Reservation

Project Term: 24 months, Ended 2017
Grant Amount: $100,000

The CSKT Tribal Health Department accomplished three objectives with this grant: (1) Pursuant to public law 638, assumed the Indian Health Service budget for purchased and referred care (PRC), and tribally managed this program. This vastly expanded the available resources to cover services not available on the reservation; (2) enrolled eligible members in Medicaid now that Montana’s Medicaid expansion has been approved, and enrolled those above the Medicaid income thresholds in private insurance on the exchange; and (3) educated providers that see CSKT members on this new coverage approach, and educated patients on how to effectively use coverage.
