The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is in the process of reviewing and updating CMS’s Tribal Consultation policy (November 17, 2011). As part of this process, we have asked Tribal leaders to provide recommendations on how we can improve the CMS tribal consultation policy. Because state Medicaid programs are required to consult with tribes and Indian health care programs located within their state, we have also asked the tribes to provide feedback and recommendations on how CMS can work with states and Tribes to make the state-tribal consultation process more effective. We have asked for tribal comments by October 1, 2014.
CMS will be holding an All Tribes’ Call on September 15, 2014 from 1:30 – 3:00 pm ET to provide an overview of the policy and answer any questions or issues regarding the policy.
