Commission on Native Children Virtual Hearing: Medicaid and other Third Party Payers and Improved Access to Health
This panel will examine trends in Medicaid and other Third Party Payers to expand services for Native children and youth in tribal programs. The Indian Health System is woefully underfunded and severely limits access to physical, mental and behavioral health services for Alaska Native and American Indian children and families, whether direct delivery services or Indian Self-Determination Act contracts or compacts. However, other funding sources such as Medicaid, Children’s Health Insurance Program, Veterans’ Benefits and private insurers can supplement the I.H.S. funds so that tribal providers can expand the scope and extent of the services they provide. The panelists will provide practice-based, academic and research perspectives on opportunities and challenges to improve health outcomes for Native children and families with innovative payment options.
