116th Congress

A bill to amend the Indian Health Care Improvement Act to authorize urban Indian organizations to enter into arrangements for the sharing of medical services and facilities, and for other purposes.

Sponsor: Sen. Tom Udall — D — NM

Requires the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to reimburse Urban Indian Organizations (UIOs) for the costs of health care that eligible Indian veterans would receive, without prior authorization, at UIO medical facilities. Except for substance abuse residential programs, nonprofit UIO medical facilities only provide outpatient medical services to American Indians and Alaska Natives in urban settings. Under current law, VA reimburses the Indian Health Services (IHS) and Tribal Operated Health Programs (THPs) for health care provided to eligible Indian veterans at IHS and THP medical facilities, but the agreement excludes UIOs.
