The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is updating its policy regarding the circumstances in which 100 percent federal funding would be available for services furnished to Medicaid-eligible American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) individuals through facilities of the Indian Health Service (IHS) or Tribes.
On October 27, 2015, CMS issued a Request for Comment that described the policy options being considered and sought feedback from states, Tribes, and other stakeholders. Below are the comments received through the deadline of November 17, 2015.
In addition to receiving individual letters, CMS received several emails providing feedback on our proposed policy change. In order to make these emails publicly available, we have inputted the contents of the received emails into a chart. Comments submitted by email.
